The report on highways was part of the county's Comprehensive Transportation Plan.

Howard County's green transit buses carried 13 percent more riders last fiscal year, but the revenue gain was more than eaten up by higher fuel costs, according to Ray Ambrose, the system's administrator. "Our costs really increased rapidly last year because of the fuel issue," he said. While the system carried 80,000 more riders and took in $50,000 more in revenues, gas costs for the 27-bus system were up $80,000, Ambrose said. The problem will keep the system from adding major new services at a time when better public transportation is being discussed as a vital element in redeveloping Columbia's downtown, and to serve economic growth.

It was a few hours after the first snow flurry of the year, dusk was falling and Kyle Burke was walking north along U.S. 1 in Howard County, near Whiskey Bottom Road, trying to find a ride home to Columbia from his first day at a new job. His sister had given him a lift in the morning, but wasn't able to take him home. He'd just missed one bus that would have taken him halfway toward home, and another bus that passed wasn't headed his way. He was going to have to shell out $10 for a cab. "If you got to come this way, it's difficult," said Burke, whose car blew out its engine in August.

When a Maryland Transit Administration commuter bus that runs from Columbia to Baltimore discontinues all its neighborhood stops in a week, Howard County buses will pick up the slack. County Executive James N. Robey has decided to spend the roughly $42,000 a year needed to send two Howard Transit vehicles to the same general areas where the No. 310 commuter bus has traveled, though with about half as many pickup points. Faced with a budget crunch, the MTA decided this month to eliminate the 20 or so stops in Oakland Mills and Long Reach villages.
