Regional Transportation Authority Seeks Input on Development of a New 20-Year Plan

A 35-member Citizens Advisory Committee (CAC) of the Regional Transportation Authority (RTA) wants resident input on guiding principles for the development of a new 20-year regional transportation plan. The CAC will consider the value of regional benefits of proposed projects versus the estimated construction costs to meet the budget.

The survey asks participants to rank the importance of traffic congestion, crosstown mobility, transit ridership, bicycle and pedestrian facilities, air quality, and more. Voters approved a half-cent sales tax in 2006 to fund transportation improvements in Pima County.

To date, more than $1 billion has been invested. The survey will be available until Friday, Dec. 13.
