Pinal Regional Transportation Authority

What is the PRTA?

The Pinal County Board of Supervisors established the Pinal Regional Transportation Authority (PRTA) in 2015 as a public improvement and taxing subdivision of the State of Arizona to coordinate multi-jurisdictional transportation planning, improvements, and funding. This is an entity authorized and defined in Arizona Revised Statutes Title 48 (Special Taxing Districts), Chapter 30 (Regional Transportation Authority). The PRTA is comprised of members from Pinal County plus municipalities and tribal nations within the county.

This organization developed a Regional Transportation Plan (RTP) that was taken to the voters in a November 2017 Special Election. The voters of Pinal County approved both the RTP and a 20-year half-cent sales tax to fund the transportation improvements contained in the plan. However, the structure of the tax was challenged in a 2018 lawsuit and ruled invalid by the Arizona Supreme Court in March 2022, so implementation of the Plan has not yet begun.
