Welcome to Go Howard! Formerly Howard Commuter Solutions, 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.

What’s happening?

The Howard County Office of Transportation is excited to share with you the details for our upcoming Complete Streets Community Engagement Plan Workshops on September 23rd at 1:00pm and 7:00 pm.
A key goal of the Complete Streets initiative is to make our roads safe and usable by all modes of transportation, which promotes community health, sustainability, and fiscal soundness.
The Workshops will review:
  • The Howard County Complete Streets initiative and why it is important for Howard County roadway users
  • Highlights of the draft version of the Complete Streets Community Engagement Plan
  • Our invitation to you for your input on the Plan.
For more information, visit the Complete Streets website (bit.ly/3hfCXNt) or email us at transportation@howardcounty.gov.
Please note, each of the two workshops will cover the same material, so attending both is not necessary.
