The certificate was awarded from the Government Finance Officers Association of the United States and Canada. The report was issued for the fiscal year ending June 30, 2000.

The American Public Transportation Association recently awarded first place in the print media category of its annual "Ad- Wheel" awards marketing competition to Howard County for its redesigned Howard Transit route schedules.

The schedules, part of a public awareness campaign to promote the county's bus system, were a project of Marketing Outsource Associates Inc., retained by Corridor Transportation Corp., the county's bus contractor.
