Sunday service will continue for at least three months for riders on Howard Transit's green buses, staving off a slim portion of the $1.9 million in cuts and fare increases that took effect Thursday. County Executive Ken Ulman said he was responding to a request from the county's Transportation Board, which heard pleas last month from riders who have no other way to get to work, stores or religious services on Sundays. "We're going to continue it for three months and monitor it to see where things are," Ulman said.
