Schedule a Presentation
Transportation affects us all. As transportation planners, we want to ensure that our plans address our region’s highest priority needs based on your input.
If you or your group are interested in learning about the RTA Next regional transportation plan development process and how the draft 20-year plan is shaping up for public review and input, we have a presentation to share those details with you.
The RTA is preparing a $2.34 billion draft plan to share with the public in 2024. This draft plan currently proposes roadway, transit, safety, active transportation (bicycle/pedestrian) and environmental improvements to ensure we have a safe, reliable and connected transportation network.
Once the draft is approved by the RTA Board, the RTA will conduct outreach region wide in the greater Tucson area to seek public input for final plan revisions prior to an election. An election will be held as early as May 2025 for voter consideration of the plan and a countywide half-cent sales tax extension to fund it.
Here’s a sneak preview of the presentation we will share with your group. The presentation’s key points address:
- History of the RTA
- Benefits or RTA regional investments
- Why we need a tax extension and new plan
- Economic impacts of the RTA
- Setting regional transportation priorities and your role
- Next steps
