As the region’s metropolitan planning organization, Pima Association of Governments develops a long-range, performance-based transportation plan that promotes a safe and efficient transportation system to meet the mobility needs of people and freight across the Tucson metropolitan area.
Plan development considerations include accessible pedestrian walkways, bicycle transportation facilities, intermodal facilities, buses, bus facilities and commuter vanpool providers. Plan projects and programs should foster economic growth and development opportunities, consider resiliency needs and minimize transportation-related fuel use and air pollution.
PAG is federally required (Title 23 U.S.C. Sec. 134) to regularly update its long-range transportation plan, which has a 25-year planning horizon.
2045 RMAP Update – Notice of Public Comment Period
In 2018, PAG began the process of updating the 2045 Regional Mobility and Accessibility Plan (RMAP). The 2045 RMAP Update builds upon the current RMAP and updates relevant information including new population and employment data, as well as updated revenue forecasts. Each PAG member jurisdiction in the greater Tucson region was asked to review and update their respective project lists to remove completed projects and update cost estimates as needed. The updated plan will have a 25-year planning horizon and is scheduled for completion in fall 2020. View the 2045 RMAP Update video to learn more about the development of PAG’s long-range transportation plan.
