ELLICOTT CITY, MD – Howard County Executive Allan H. Kittleman has announced an important milestone in his initiative to improve public transportation for residents. With the arrival of six new fixed route buses placed into service this month with the Regional Transportation Agency of Central Maryland (RTA), more than half the fleet serving county riders has been replaced in the last 16 months.

How Are We Doing?

My husband and I have been riding RTA Mobility since 2015 and we are very pleased with the service and excellent care they provide! You have special drivers, dispatch workers, call center staff and personnel that go beyond to meet our needs.  My first experience to obtain certification as an RTA Mobility Rider was extremely professional and very caring. I highly recommend this service.
