COMTO provides an opportunity to network with Transportation professionals from different agencies and from various modes of Transportation. The transportation industry in California is booming. LA Metro had projected to complete 28 infrastructure projects completed by 2028, LAWA will be rebuilding terminals at LAX and building a transit system to shuttle customers to the terminals. OCTA is expanding the 405 highway and building a streetcar in Orange County, the first of its kind. Caltrans is updating our interstate highway system. The California Air Resources Board (CARB) adopted the regulation December 14th, 2018 requiring transportation agencies to begin to purchase zero-emission buses as soon as 2023. What a time to be in the Transportation Industry!

There will be opportunities for a small business to scale to a large firm. There will be opportunities for advancement in all agencies. Whether you are a business owner or work for an agency, you must be ready for the opportunities that will present themselves. COMTO can help you!

As the President of the Southern California Regional Chapter I am passionate about COMTO. The Executive Board, Advisory Board and Committee Chairs are passionate about COMTO. We want all members passionate about COMTO. 

That’s why we are happy to produce this enhanced website. This will be our way to communicate to our members and the community at large. All our meetings, events, and information will be communicated through this website. There will be more features added to this website in the coming months, so please check back with us regularly.

We look forward to a successful partnership with the Transportation community here in Southern California and beyond. Please feel free to join a committee, so you can be a part of enhancing SoCal COMTO.
