The Regional Transportation Authority established a 35-member citizens advisory committee to assist in developing a continuation plan. The current RTA plan, which voters approved in 2006, will be implemented through June 2026. The current plan is funded by a half-cent excise tax in the RTA special taxing district established by the state within Pima County.
A continuation plan would be funded by an extension of the existing RTA half-cent excise tax, and both the plan and tax would need approval by voters in a future election.
- Transportation improvements enhance regional mobility, safety and reliability to make each of our communities a better place to live
- A continuation of the RTA half-cent excise tax would help meet the transportation demands of our growing communities and leverage other resources
- The RTA half-cent excise tax provides the most flexible funding solution
- Current RTA revenues represent the greatest annual average transportation funding source for our region to supplement stagnant state and federal resources
If you have ideas or suggestions about transportation priorities that you are interested in having considered for the development of a 20-year RTA continuation plan and would like to be added to our mailing list to receive updates on the RTA continuation plan, please submit your ideas or suggestions below:
