COMTO North Texas President’s Message – 1st Quarter 2019
What a successful year 2018 has been to the COMTO North Texas Chapter. This year we achieved so much in the area of advocacy, education, fundraising and scholarships. We expanded partnerships, grew our membership and connected professionals and contractors to many of the transit, aviation and heavy highway projects in the DFW area. We have been truly blessed as a chapter and it could not have been done with the tremendous amount of support we have received from our membership, corporate and agency partners. Here are some highlights on how we closed out 2018.
In November, we partnered with Trinity Metro, Trinity Rail Express (TRE) and Dallas Area Rapid Transit (DART) and hosted a Connecting Two Cities through Transportation Event and Reception in Fort Worth. This event covered information regarding the growing commuter and regional rail system in the DFW area and how this expansion is contributing to the development of a true multi-modal transportation network in the region. Over 50 professionals from the transit industry participated to meet with key leaders and administrators from Trinity Metro, TRE and DART.
