Pima Association of Governments is responsible for regional transit planning activities as well as the coordination of several state and federal funding programs for public transit. PAG works with local jurisdictions, the Arizona Department of Transportation (ADOT), the Federal Transit Administration (FTA), and many private, nonprofit agencies to plan for a regional network of transit services.
Long-range transit planning is conducted as part of PAG’s regional transportation plan (RTP). The current long-range plan is the 2040 RTP, which provides a broad vision and goals for a balanced, multimodal and sustainable transportation system over the next 25 years.
Individual transit agencies or municipalities conduct short-range planning. Short-range programming of major transit projects is included in PAG's five-year Transportation Improvement Program. The projects include transit investments, such as the purchase of new buses and vans, upgraded maintenance facilities, replacement equipment, new transit stations and annual service operations.
