It's your plan!

The Regional Transportation Authority is finalizing a draft of a new 20-year regional transportation plan (RTA Next) to enhance our economic future through the use of locally collected and directed funds. These funds will offer greater flexibility in meeting transportation priorities across the greater Tucson region to meet your everyday needs. Public input will be key.

Overview

RTA Next is a public-input process to develop a new regional transportation plan for the Regional Transportation Authority of Pima County. The current voter-approved, 20-year RTA plan and countywide half-cent sales tax expire on June 30, 2026.

Delivering our promise to you

A new 20-year regional transportation plan will infuse another $2.34 billion into transportation improvements across the region to meet the demands of our changing demographics. A voter-approved investment of flexible RTA funding will help create a safer, more reliable transportation system to improve regional mobility and accessibility, and to drive economic benefits such as business development and expansion, and new jobs.
RTA members include Pima County, the Cities of Tucson and South Tucson, the Towns of Marana, Oro Valley and Sahuarita, the Pascua Yaqui Tribe, the Tohono O'odham Nation and the Arizona Department of Transportation. RTA members take the lead on scheduling, managing and building RTA plan projects throughout the region. The RTA manages the voter-approved plan and sales tax revenues and reimburses members as they complete projects.
