How can streets be made safer? How can we expand travel options so more people can walk, bike, or take public transit? How do we improve reliability of travel time, particularly as we grow? The City of Tucson needs your help shaping its vision and action plan to answer these questions and more. Together, through “Move Tucson,” we can create the city we want to be.
