TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

It starts later this morning at the University of Arizona's student union.

This will be the last day for the public to tell Sun Tran officials how they feel about its proposed bus fare increase and route changes.

The Sun Tran open house is from 10:30 a.m. to noon inside the Kiva Room at the University of Arizona's student union near Mountain Ave. and 2nd St.  

This is an opportunity to learn about the proposed changes, ask Sun Tran officials questions, and give your input.  The bus ticket price could go up by $0.25.

Sun Tran officials say the hikes are needed since they've been hit hard by rising fuel and utility prices.

There are other options for those who cannot make the meeting today, but still want to submit their comments or ask Sun Tran officials a question:

E-mail: suntranifo@tucsonaz.gov

Call: (520) 792-9222

Fill out an online survey

This Friday, April 4 is the last day to submit comments before Sun Tran officials come up with a recommendation and submit it to Tucson City Council.

If the recommendation includes changes and they are approved, they could be in place as early as July 1.
