Conference Of Minority Transportation Officials (COMTO) Joins Getting America To Work

Washington, D.C. – Getting America to Work today announced that the Conference Of Minority Transportation Officials (COMTO) has joined its growing coalition of transit agencies, business groups and councils of government working to support increased federal funding for our nation’s transportation systems.

“Minority transportation officials and professionals across the United States are concerned about the poor condition of our roads, bridges and rail lines,” said COMTO Board Chair Robert Prince. “COMTO is excited to become a member of the Getting America to Work coalition, and we look forward to working with our elected officials to pass long-term transportation legislation that will bring our national infrastructure into a state of good repair.”
