CDOT to staff new transit and rail committee


The Colorado Department of Transportation is accepting applications for membership on a a new transit and rail advisory committee. The 11 to 15 member committee will advise the division director and make recommendations on the division’s vision, policies and the use of transit and rail funds.

Committee members will be unpaid and will serve for two to three years. Meetings will be held at least six times a year.

“Some initial action items include identifying gaps in transit services and exploring potential new transit and rail services, including high-speed rail,” transit and rail division director Mark Imhoff said in a recent statement.

The committee will be geographically balanced and interest groups including counties, municipalities, urban transit, rural transit and passenger rail will be represented, according to the statement from CDOT.

Applications, due no later than Nov. 19, are available online at the CDOT website. CDOT discourages applicants from providing resumes or work histories.
