2045 Regional Transportation Plan

Pima Association of Governments updates its long-range regional transportation plan every four years as mandated by the federal government. The next update to the plan will result in the 2045 Regional Transportation Plan. The plan, which has a 30-year horizon, provides a framework for transportation investments in the greater Tucson region.

As the 2045 RTP is developed, information will be available online. A Task Force began meeting in January 2014 to provide input into development of the plan, which is expected to be completed in the spring of 2016.

The 2045 RTP Task Force will consider all elements of the regional transportation network, including, but not limited to:

  • Land use and growth forecasts
  • Public transportation
  • Congestion management
  • High-capacity transit
  • Transportation finance
  • Transportation safety
  • Bikeways and sidewalks
  • Aviation improvements
  • Highways and arterials
  • Road Maintenance

If you would like more information about the plan, about how to participate in the planning effort, or to schedule a presentation, please contact Patrick Hartley ( or Katharine Hardy ( ) for further assistance.


Other RTP Considerations

PAG's regional transportation plan (RTP) identifies transportation projects that can be developed with federal, state and local funding and establishes long-range regional strategies to enhance the movement of people and goods across Pima County.

When implemented, the transportation improvements included in the plan are intended to reduce congestion, support economic growth, expand transportation choices, and enhance our environment and quality of life, making this a more efficient, livable, safe and thriving community. 

The plan is required to be financially constrained, meaning the projects that can be included in the Plan are limited to those which we can reasonably expect to pay for over the next 30 years.

The plan does not commit funding to specific projects, but transportation projects that ultimately do receive funding in our region must be consistent with the plan.
