COMTO recently voted in COMTO Richmond! The chapter will serve Richmond, Virginia and the surrounding areas to create a community of support among transportation professionals, agencies, corporations, small businesses and other like-minded organizations to maximize opportunities for minorities in the transportation industry. Lamar Bates, Manager of Safety, Training and Labor Relations/DSLE for Keolis Rail Services Virginia will lead COMTO Richmond. Sponsoring organizations include Richmond Metropolitan Transportation Authority (RMTA), Greater Richmond Transit Company (GRTC) and the Department of Rail and Public Transportation (DRPT). COMTO Richmond is the fourth chapter we’ve established in the past year. Seeing COMTO continue grow despite the COVID-19 pandemic and tense racial and political environment, confirms our mission is timeless and remains even more relevant. We look forward hearing more from this new chapter!
