Sun Tran riders will have a new way to pay

TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) - In just a few days Sun Tran is moving to a new card system changing the way riders pay for rides.

Now is the time for the change, the new card is called SunGO and it's designed with an easier system for bus riders.

The card resembles a credit card in size and shape; it will serve as the fare payment card and can store cash value or passes.

The SunGO system uses smart card technology to pay and transfer throughout all Sun Tran programs and eventually the Sun Link Modern Streetcar.

Passengers can take their SunGO card and plan ahead, avoiding the last minute rush to buy a bus ticket.

People need to have them activated by Sunday.  Sun Tran's current passes will not be accepted after this Saturday.
