TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) - Calling on all transit riders, a new program that began on June 1, offers riders a chance to load $25 to their SunGO Cards and pay only $20.
This is an added benefit for transit riders who use SunGO, as when they pay at the fare box, SunGO users are charged a lower rate than if they pay with cash.
Full-fare passengers who use the SunGO card are charged only $1.50 per trip to ride any of the Sun Tran, Sun Link, and select Sun Shuttle routes. In comparison those who don't use SunGO are charged $1.75 per ride for Sun Tran and Sun Shuttle. Cash is not an option for those who ride the Sun Link streetcar.
There is a $2 cost for new SunGO Cards, but those who register their SunGO Cards receive an additional $2 in value loaded to their cards.
The $25 for $20 promotion is available through the following avenues:
- Online at www.suntran.com/sungo
- Phone at (520) 792-9222
- Ticket Vending Machines at the Transit Centers
- SunGO Sales Outlets including all Fry’s Food Stores
