TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) - Effective, Friday, Dec. 1, Sun Tran Special Services will temporarily change its office hours to the following schedule:
- Monday: 7 a.m. – 6 p.m.
- Tuesday through Friday: 8 a.m. – 4 p.m.
Back in August 2017, the Special Services Office ran a pilot program to provide extended hours of service, which included remaining open later and serving customers on select Saturdays. After performing a careful evaluation, Sun Tran determined that demand for Saturday hours was low and should be discontinued.
In this modified trial, the office will open earlier on Mondays and remain open until 6 p.m. The change will be in effect for another three-month trial period. Afterwards, Sun Tran will evaluate the usage based on compiled data to determine if the new hours should become permanent.
The Special Services Office assists low-income, persons with disabilities, seniors 65 years and older, and Medicare cardholders with applying for the Economy Fare Program. At the Special Services Office, Sun Tran and Sun Shuttle passengers can:
