The Regional Transportation Authority has a strong foundation built on public support and trust. When voters approved the RTA’s 20-year regional transportation plan and funding in 2006, it was the first, truly regional plan and one that would benefit every community: the towns of Marana, Sahuarita and Oro Valley, the cities of Tucson and South Tucson, the Tohono O’odham Nation, Pascua Yaqui Tribe and Pima County. State-owned roadways in our region also benefit from the plan. We are all partners in making our transportation network operate and function at the highest and safest level possible.
The RTA has delivered nearly 950 projects across the region including corridor and intersection improvements, pedestrian crossings, bus pullouts, bridges, sidewalks and bike lanes, as well as expanded transit opportunities.
We invite you to take a trip down memory lane as the former chair of the RTA Board, Ramón Valadez, talks about how we came together as one community to develop the RTA plan and increase the quality of life for all.
