RTA seeks applicants for Pima transportation advisory committee

The Regional Transportation Authority is accepting applications from Pima County residents to fill 13 vacancies on the Citizens Advisory Committee.

Applications close on Sept. 10 at noon and can be submitted online or in person to the RTA office at 1 E. Broadway.

RTA is currently in the process of implementing its first 20-year plan to improve regional transportation which was approved by voters in 2006 and will run until 2026. As of May 21, RTA has completed 900 projects and services that improve the four areas of RTA’s focus which are “roadway corridors, safety, transit, environmental and economic vitality” according to the RTA website.

Members of CAC will help collect information and feedback from the public on the next proposal for another 20-year plan to extend the run from 2026 to 2046.

Based on a 2019 survey conducted by CAC, 85% of 3,100 people agreed on previous goals for the 20-year plan which were: “ improve the condition of existing roadways, provide efficient crosstown mobility, reduce congestion and reduce crashes at intersections.”

CAC will accept proposals from all local jurisdictions for projects they will consider in the draft for the next 20-year plan.

CAC’s final draft of the next 20-year plan will be voted on by members of the RTA Board which will then be voted on by the public.
