BRTB Members

The members of the Baltimore Regional Transportation Board are made up of elected officials from the cities of Annapolis and Baltimore, the counties of Anne Arundel, Baltimore, Carroll, Harford, Howard, and Queen Anne's. In addition, the Board includes the Secretaries of the Maryland Departments of Transportation, Environment, and Planning, and the Administrator of the Maryland Transit Administration as well as the Administrator of Harford Transit.

Voting rights are extended to all members with the exception of the Maryland Department of the Environment, the Maryland Department of Planning, Maryland Transit Administration, and Queen Anne's County. These agencies serve the BRTB in an advisory capacity.

In the absence of official members of the BRTB, alternates have been designated and empowered by their respective chief elected official or Secretary and serve as a means to integrate local- and state-oriented policies and needs into a regionally-based agenda.

*The Maryland Department of Transportation is a multi-modal organization that includes the State Highway Administration, Maryland Transit Administration, Maryland Port Administration, Maryland Aviation Administration, Maryland Transportation Authority and the Motor Vehicle Administration. As part of the MPO, MDOT votes on behalf of all State affiliated transportation modes and authorities.

As the air quality agency, the Maryland Department of the Environment  is an active member in the MPO process. Providing technical input and direction, MDE has assumed an advocacy role in the development of transportation system improvements that enhance the region's efforts to reach air quality goals by the prescribed time.

The Maryland Department of Planning also sits on the MPO, providing a direct linkage between transportation planning decisions and statewide growth management and land planning strategies.

As of the 2010 Census, the portion of Queen Anne's County encompassing Kent Island over to the unincorporated limits of Grasonville are in the Baltimore urbanized area. This means that any transportation improvements seeking federal funding in that area now need to go through the MPO process. 

The BRTB includes a voting member for eligible public transit agencies which is currently represented by the Administrator of Harford County Transit.

**Ex-officio members of the Baltimore Regional  Transportation Board typically do not sit with the voting members. Their contributions to discussion are less frequent and are typically made in an advisory capacity.
