The tax funds the RTA’s 20-year regional transportation plan, which voters in the district approved in May 2006 along with the excise tax. To date, the RTA has invested over $1 billion in the region to deliver transportation projects and services that improve our region’s mobility, safety, economic vitality and quality of life. This project is managed by the City of Tucson. Please visit www.RTAmobility.com for more information.
