Fourth down for Sun Tran shuttle to UofA games
Due to budget constraints, Tucson, AZ-based Sun Tran will be unable to provide shuttle service for the 2011 University of Arizona home football games.
Last season, Sun Tran’s football shuttle service incurred a net operating cost of $104,368, which was supported by the City of Tucson general fund. Sun Tran provided 55,408 passenger trips during the 2010 season, recouping 28.7 percent of shuttle operating costs from passenger fares. As a recipient of Federal Transit Administration funding, Sun Tran is prohibited from charging customers more than double the one-way base fare for round-trip shuttle service.
