The annual View From the Hill is quickly approaching. COMTO members from around the nation will convene on Capitol Hill on September 21, 2017, beginning at 8:00 a.m. to meet with Congressional officials and representatives to share views on the rehabilitation and revitalization of America’s Transportation Infrastructure. The speaker panel is currently in formation and will be presented as soon as it is finalized. However, topics of discussion could include

  • Rebuilding America’s Infrastructure Plan
  • How Public Transportation helps to build Economic Growth and Job Development
  • Innovative Transportation Funding practices including, Public Private Partnerships (P3s)
  • Maintaining Small Business and Minority Competitiveness in the Transportation Industry
