At the April meeting of the RTA/PAG Working Transit Group meeting there was discussion about the rate increases proposed by Sun Tran. This still needs to be approved by Tucson’s mayor and council but will also impact the rates for the Express routes and Sun Shuttles which are not within the city limits. Riders of the Express bus, the Sun Shuttle and/ or Sun Tran may be interested in providing comments on their proposed changes.
The current proposal will increase the rates on Express Routes over by 50 percent. It will also impact the discount rates for low income and senior riders. Although the open houses for public comments took place in March you can still provide comments to Sun Tran. Public comments will be taken into consideration as the Regional Transportation Authority decides its position on these proposed changes. Email comments to firstname.lastname@example.org, call them at 792-9222, or send comments to Sun Tran, Attn: Marketing, 3920 N. Sun Tran Blvd., Tucson, AZ 85711.
