TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

Public input is sought on adding the 3-Day transit pass and the $25 for $20 programs as permanent fare options.

The 3-Day Pass pilot program ran from August 2017 through February 2018.  The 3-Day Pass provides passengers unlimited rides on Sun Link, Sun Tran and select Sun Shuttle routes for 72 consecutive hours after activated on transit vehicles, and offers an alternative to the current 1-Day and 30-Day pass options.
 
With the $25 for $20 program, passengers can load $25 to their SunGO Cards and pay only $20. And when paying at the farebox with money loaded to a SunGO Card, full-fare passengers are charged a lower rate than if paying with cash. 

Seven public open house events will be held for the public to meet Sun Tran staff and obtain additional information:

  • Monday, May 14, noon to 1 p.m. at University of Arizona Student Union (Agave Room), 1303 E. University Blvd.
