RTA Board

The RTA Board is a governing body made up of chief elected officials from local, tribal and state governments who work collaboratively to oversee the implementation of projects and transit services identified in the voter-approved RTA plan through June 2026. The board, which meets five times a year, also oversees the fiscal management of the plan and grants approval of project schedules and budgets. Each member has one vote to ensure policy and decisions are made with a regional commitment to drive economic growth across the region. The nine-member RTA Board includes representatives from eight jurisdictions and the Arizona State Transportation Board. The jurisdictions include: Pima County, South Tucson, Tucson, Marana, Oro Valley, Sahuarita, the Pascua Yaqui Tribe and Tohono O’odham Nation.
