A. The lack of adequate transportation systems is one of the most difficult problems facing the Prince George's County Council. A reasonable number of our constituents lack the means to get to their jobs. Without this these people will become dependent on the county, thereby robbing the county of a potential stream of income, while at the same time creating a drain on the county's resources. To ease the strain on the infrastructure, it is necessary to plan for upkeep of the system as well as easing the need for a continuous flow of traffic over these roads. The council has approved $316.8 million for the general transportation system, but this may not be sufficient to meet the needs of a growing county population. Consideration must be given to extending the public system while we look at developing our own "people mover systems" to serve some of the outlying areas of the county. F.
