New 3-Day Pass provides unlimited rides on Sun Tran and Sun Link (press release)
TUCSON, Ariz. – “Sun Tran, Sun Link, and City of Tucson Department of Transportation will launch a 3-Day Pass pilot program, available August 15 through February 2018. The new 3-Day Pass will provide unlimited rides on Sun Link, Sun Tran and select Sun Shuttle routes for 72 consecutive hours after first activated on transit vehicles.
Tucson residents can take advantage of the 3-Day Pass on Sun Link and Sun Tran bus routes to travel more frequently and to more destinations. The 3-Day Pass offers an alternative to the current 1-Day and 30-Day pass options and will be available to the general public through February 15, 2018.
The 3-Day Pass provides a convenient transit option for visitors to explore Tucson’s entertainment districts along the Sun Link streetcar route. Jane McCollum, General Manager of Main Gate Square, says, “The 3-Day Pass will be great for tourists and conference goers, as well as locals who might enjoy a staycation in the greater downtown core.”
The pass will be tested for a six month period and will be evaluated to determine if the pilot program or similar program will be integrated into the public transportation fare structure on a long-term basis.
The 3-Day Pass costs $10 ($11 total when loaded on the GoTucson Transit app or $12 total when including the cost of a newSunGO Card) and can be purchased online, by phone, on the GoTucson Transit app, at SunGO Sales Outlets, Ticket Vending Machines at the City of Tucson’s three transit centers, Sun Tran Special Services Office, or Sun Tran Administrative Office.
