Conference of Minority Transportation Officials - Colorado Chapter
Moving the Nation

COMTO’s mission is to provide full access to employment, career and contract opportunities for minorities and women within the transportation industry.

Over the past thirty years, our mandate has evolved to include not only public transportation industry executives, but also professionals at every level of industry encompassing a variety of fields and disciplines. Now, as was then, members are encouraged to share information, opportunities and personal expertise. With 34 chapters throughout the United States, our mission is as relevant today as we strive to provide full access to employment, career and contract opportunities for minorities within the transportation industry. A small group of professionals committed to this mission, founded the Colorado Chapter of COMTO in May 2004.
