Regional Mobility Authorities

A Regional Mobility Authority (RMA) is a local, independent transportation agency that can finance, build, operate and maintain toll roads and other transportation projects. The Texas Legislature authorized the creation of RMAs in 2001 to provide a new, more flexible way to address local transportation needs and get projects developed more quickly than through traditional funding.

Individual counties can form an RMA, or multiple counties can come together to create a single RMA entity. They receive funding for initial project development from the sale of bonds. They may also seek a loan or grant from TxDOT.

To date, RMAs have opened the 183A toll road in Central Texas and SH 550 in Cameron County, completed a pass-through financing agreement in Grayson County, advanced transportation planning in the San Antonio area and built an outer loop south and west of Tyler.
