Board & Committees

RTA Board

The RTA Board is a nine-member governing body made up of chief elected officials from local, state and tribal governments. Board members work collaboratively to oversee the implementation of transportation projects and transit services identified in the voter-approved, RTA plan through June 2026. The RTA Board, which meets six times a year, also oversees the fiscal management of the regional transportation plan and grants approval of RTA project schedules and budgets. Each RTA member has one vote to ensure policies and decisions are made with a commitment to drive economic growth across the region. The RTA Board includes representatives from Pima CountySouth TucsonTucsonMaranaOro ValleySahuarita, the Pascua Yaqui TribeTohono O’odham Nation and Arizona State Transportation Board.

RTA Technical Management Committee

The RTA Technical Management Committee is a technical and policy advisory committee that monitors the technical performance of the 2006 voter-approved RTA plan and has provided technical input to the RTA Citizens Advisory Committee and RTA Board on the development of draft plan recommendations for a new 20-year regional transportation plan.

The committee includes representatives from RTA member jurisdictions and the private sector, and meets as needed.

RTA Citizens Advisory Committee

The RTA Citizens Advisory Committee has provided initial citizen input on development of recommendations to the RTA Board for the next RTA plan. The current 20-year RTA plan and half-cent excise (sales) tax to fund the plan, which voters approved in May 2006, are effective through June 2026.

In December 2023, the CAC forwarded recommendations for a draft plan to the RTA Board. The RTA Board currently is reviewing information from the CAC and technical committee as it prepares to finalize a draft plan for public input later this year and eventual voter consideration.

Upon RTA Board approval of a draft plan, the RTA will conduct broad public outreach to seek review and input on the plan.
