New RTA progress report available now

Ever wonder about the progress of the Regional Transportation Authority’s 20-year multimodal improvement plan? Check out the latest annual update in the new Our Mobility brochure.

Each year, the update details project and funding status for the 20-year plan. This year, we’re looking back at 15 successful years of delivering roadway, transit, safety, environmental and economic improvements to the Tucson metro area.

  • Maps show where bike lanes, sidewalks and multi-use pathways have been added or improved throughout the region.
  • At-a-glance, the FY 2019-20 budget breakdown shows more than $500,000 spent on bus pullouts.
  • Critical wildlife linkages have been incorporated into 18 projects to improve the transportation safety and environmental impact of sharing our region with desert animals.

Voters approved the RTA plan and a half-cent excise, or sales, tax to fund the projects, from 2006 to 2026. A body of elected officials from local jurisdictions makes up the RTA’s governing board, with representatives from Tucson, South Tucson, Marana, Sahuarita, Oro Valley and Pima County, plus the Pascua Yaqui Tribe, Tohono O’odham Nation and Arizona Department of Transportation.

A committee of local residents oversees the implementation of the plan.
