Explore How Growth Impacts Transportation

The Tucson region is forecasted to grow by 450,000 residents and 200,000 jobs over the next 30 years. How and where that growth occurs will have serious impacts on our transportation system.

Set Your Base Investment Option

Regional transportation projects are ultimately funded by various state, federal and local resources, such as federal and state gas taxes and state vehicle license fees, as well as through an existing countywide ½-cent voter-approved sales tax. More than $4.7 billion of future revenue is already committed to various projects.
1. Do you support continuing the existing regional transportation sales tax through 2045?


Over a 20-year period, a continued regional sales tax would generate $2.7 billion toward transportation improvements (average household cost is $15 per month).
