CBC Transportation Braintrust

A. Bradley Mims, Hon. Elijah Cummings, Warren Montague

The Congressional Black Caucus Foundation‘s Transportation Braintrust was conceived over 20 years ago to provide a forum during the CBCF Annual Legislative Conference (ALC) for the top-level exchange of information and ideas between key leaders and experts in the transportation industry. Since the turn of the century, the program has grown significantly under the guidance and sponsorship of U.S. Representative Elijah Cummings (D-MD) and COMTO leadership.

***The 2019 CBCF Transportation Braintrust was held on Thursday, September 12, 2019, from 4:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. at the Washington Convention Center. Program to follow! Additional details can be found here

Didn’t make it to our 2019 COMTO/CBCF Transportation BrainTrust? Check out our video HERE for exclusive insight from our panel discussion and see what our panelists had to share about some of the ongoing issues in transportation.


The Braintrust brings together the best minds and brightest thinkers in the field to discuss issues of particular relevance to the collective peoples of color in transportation, including economic development, community participation, public safety, universal access, and business opportunity.

These experts come together annually and represent both a consolidation of the public and private sectors and a collaboration of diverse disciplines in the transportation industry. The free flow of thought-provoking questions and subsequent discussion of the issues in a public setting can lead to an ongoing dialogue among all stakeholders. This will significantly assist the COMTO leadership in its efforts to both develop a consensual agenda and devise a strategic plan for Chapters and the membership at large.
