Transportation is a major environmental and quality of life issue for those doing business and residing in the County.

As a Harford County employer, we need your help to identify what you believe to be the pressing transportation issues that are or will affect your business over the next five years.
The Harford County Transportation Association (TMA) is an organization comprised of Harford County businesses, government agencies and private citizens. Our meetings are open to everyone and we invite you to attend all of them. As an advocacy group, the TMA identifies and supports convenient, effective and efficient sustainable transportation solutions for the needs of citizens, businesses, visitors, and government within Harford County.
