Pardon Our Dust! Howard Commuter Solutions is now Go Howard!
Welcome to Go Howard! We’re your resource for information on ridesharing, transit, biking, and other alternatives to driving by yourself in Howard County.
Go Howard is the Transportation Demand Management (TDM) program of Howard County, Maryland, funded by the Maryland Department of Transportation / Maryland Transit Administration and the Howard County Office of Transportation.
Due to COVID-19, the monthly meeting of the Multimodal Transportation Board (MTB) is being held via Webex on Monday April 27th from 7:00pm to 8:30pm to receive information from the Office of Transportation on several ongoing Transportation programs for Howard County including Implementation of the Complete Streets Policy and FY 2021 Budget proposals from the County Executive. More information on the MTB can be found at https://bit.ly/2Kv6i8m
The MTB will also be providing an opportunity for the public to comment on the draft EScooter Sharing System Permit that is located on the Howard County website at https://bit.ly/2S4Uxdb. Following the public comment, the MTB will be making recommendations on potential changes to the permit to the Office of Transportation.
If you would like either listen to or provide comments (time limit will be 3 minutes for individuals and 5 minutes for potential permit applicants) please register for the Webex event: https://bit.ly/2Ya2z8e
Howard County Bikeshare System Update due to Covid-19
March 24, 2020: The safety and health of the Howard County Bikeshare community is our priority. With rising questions regarding the COVID-19 outbreak, we wish to restate our commitment to keep the users and the operations team safe. After discussions with Howard County Transportation officials, we decided to close the Howard County Bikeshare system until further notice in order to help prevent the spread of the virus.
Stay safe and please follow the recommended protective measures for yourself and your loved ones. We’re looking forward seeing you back on the bikes later this summer!
