    Your Voice Matters

    Public input is important to Pima County. If you have ideas or suggestions about transportation priorities to be considered in a 20-year plan, please submit your ideas or suggestions below:

    You may also attend the monthly Pima County Transportation Advisory Committee that meets on Feb 25, March 31 and April 28 and speak during the call to the audience.
    The Regional Transportation Authority (RTA) Next is the name of the proposed 20-year regional transportation plan that is currently being developed by the RTA Board appointed RTA Citizen Advisory Committee (CAC).  The RTA is the fiscal manager of the current $2.1 billion 20-year regional transportation plan and excise tax approved by voters in 2006 and effective through 2026.  The RTA is managed by Pima Association of Governments, the region’s metropolitan planning organization.  Local governments, including Pima County, are now developing recommendations to submit for consideration in the RTA Next plan.  The RTA CAC with the support of the RTA Technical Management Committee will be evaluating all proposed projects and recommending the final plan which will be presented to voters.

    Pima County is developing recommendations for the RTA Next plan based on anticipated transportation needs within unincorporated Pima County over the next 20 years.  The plan will consider all types of transportation projects and programs serving all citizens of Pima County and all modes of travel.  Examples may include roadway maintenance, new and improved roadways, intersection and safety improvements, transit, bicycle and pedestrian improvements as well as projects to support economic development.  Also considered will be technology-related improvements to better manage traffic, improve safety, and maximize system efficiency.

    This website will provide current information on Pima County's recommendations for this plan as it is developed.  Transportation infrastructure needs that have already been identified, such as the Integrated Infrastructure Plan and Impact Fee Projects [make these links to the documents], will be reviewed for inclusion in the County’s recommendations for the plan.  Links to additional information on RTA Next are provided below.
