Starting Aug. 1, bus riders will be paying more for a fine ride on a Sun Tran around town.
Transit Fare Increase Approved, Sun Tran news release
TUCSON, Ariz. – At a public hearing held yesterday, City of Tucson Mayor and Council voted to approve a transit
fare increase effective August 1, 2009.
Sun Tran’s one-way full fare will increase from $1 to $1.25, the express fare from $1 to $1.50, and the day pass from $2 to $3. Sun Van’s one-way full fare
will increase from $2 to $2.50. All economy fares remain unchanged for both systems.
I’ve never ridden a Sun Tran, but $1.25 still seems reasonable for a fare.
New York City subways and buses are up to $2 per ride. But then again, each NYC ride comes with a full comedy show.
