About TAM:

The Transportation Association of Maryland is a 501(c)(3) organization representing 104+ member organizations and 20,000+ individual members. TAM is the legislative voice and vigilant eyes and ears of the transportation industry in Maryland. TAM’s mission is to strengthen community transportation in Maryland through advocacy and professional development.

History of TAM:

The Association has come a long way since its beginnings in October 1985, when the first board president, Jim Raszewski, along with seventeen founding members, formed the Association to promote safe, efficient and effective public transportation services in Maryland. Our first conference was held in Ocean City Maryland.

The Association incorporated in August 1991. For many years TAM functioned with a volunteer Board of Directors and a part-time Executive Director working from home. Board meetings were held in the Severna Park Public Library.

At the May 2001 General Membership meeting in Annapolis, membership voted to expand the Association by recruiting to hire a full-time Executive Director and acquiring centrally-located office space. 

In 2003, TAM hired its first full-time staff - an Executive Director and Administrative Assistant - and opened an office in Ellicott City.

In 2016, TAM moved to new offices in Linthicum.
