    Transportation
    Is Maryland’s transportation spending appropriately balanced between roads and transit? Does the state have the resources to meet its transportation needs? With the cancellation of the Red Line and the advent of BaltimoreLink, is the Baltimore region adequately served by transit?
    Mohorovic: In my thoughts, funding first for roads then transit because more individuals travel by roads. The transit option needs to improve its negative image of not being safe. Without seeing a proposed capital and operating budget predicting if transit funds are adequate is not possible. Be it is the Red Line or the Baltimore Link transit service is limited from point A to B Unlike traveling by personal vehicles - cars, carpooling or bike travel.
