Regional Active Transportation Plan

Pima Association of Governments (PAG), the greater Tucson region’s metropolitan planning organization, is developing a Regional Active Transportation Plan (RATP) to help inform PAG's long-term planning. The active transportation plan will define a long-term vision, establish priorities and evaluation tools for bicycle and pedestrian improvements, and implement the improvements across the region.

The PAG RATP will aid regional and local active transportation planning by:

  • Establishing a regional active transportation vision.

    The RATP will develop a vision statement, supporting goals, and measurable objectives to reflect how the region wants to evolve its active transportation networks and the tools to measure progress toward its goals.

  • Prioritizing investments.

    An analysis of regionally significant corridors will identify where investing in bicycle and pedestrian facility improvements will provide maximum benefit to the region’s residents and the environment.
  • Establishing preferred active transportation treatments.

    A key element of the RATP is developing an active transportation toolbox of locally preferred bicycle and pedestrian treatments to create consistent networks across jurisdictional boundaries.
  • Building momentum for investing in active transportation.

    The planning process includes engagement with the public, targeted stakeholders, and elected officials throughout, to ensure that publicly supported investments are recommended.

These visions and outcomes will help build excitement for improving active transportation across Pima County.

The RATP planning process will result in several interim documents that will feed into the final plan. As these documents are finalized, they will be added to this section.
