TUCSON, AZ - Due to the success of its inaugural shuttle sponsor program, Sun Tran is now able to offer shuttle service at a reduced rate to all Arizona Football homes games during the 2002 season.
KB Homes, O'Rielly Chevrolet, Garrett's Supermarkets, and the Arizona Lottery have signed on to sponsor all of Sun Tran's annual community event shuttles.
"We are fortunate to have these well established organizations support this community service. These sponsorships made it possible to lower fares on Arizona Football shuttles so more people - particularly families - can use Sun Tran's shuttle service," said Sun Tran General Manager George G. Caria.
Last year, a round-trip full-fare passenger paid $6.00 to ride the shuttle to a football game. This year, a round-trip full-fare will be $2.00. Round-trip half-fares are $1.00 for seniors 65 years of age or older, people with disabilities, and Medicare cardholders.
Shuttle tokens will be available for each game at the following boarding locations: Tucson Mall, east of American Home Furnishings; Fry's Shopping Center at I-19 and Irvington; and Hi Corbett Field, in front of the main entrance.
Shuttles begin leaving the boarding locations two hours before kick-off and run continuously until the beginning of the game. Passengers will arrive in front of Arizona Stadium on 6th Street. To return to boarding locations, riders may begin boarding the buses on 6th Avenue at the start of the fourth quarter. Buses will leave as they fill.
All Sun Tran buses have bike racks and are wheelchair-accessible.
