COMTO North Texas President’s Message – 3rd Quarter 2019
The North Texas Chapter has been very busy advocating and serving minority professionals throughout the North Texas transportation industry. Our Chapter takes pride in working hard to connect professionals to the many opportunities that exist in our dynamic transportation industry.
The 2nd quarter of 2019 has been a successful quarter for the COMTO North Texas Chapter. In May, we had over 100 transportation professionals attend the COMTO North Texas Spring Social and Reception at the Choctaw Room at Texas Live to highlight the great work that the City of Arlington is doing in transportation. The Honorable Council Members Kathryn Wilemon, District 4 and Mayor Pro Tem Victoria Farrar-Myers, District 7 for the City of Arlington were on hand to discuss how the City of Arlington is looking at autonomous vehicles technology and high speed rail and Hyperloop service for the city. We also recognized our very own Carol Wise, Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Operator at Dallas Area Rapid Transit (DART) for being honored in March by COMTO National during the annual Celebrating Women Who Move the Nation event in Washington, D.C.
