RTA unveils plans for seamless regional transit system

Posted: Updated:

Southern Arizona's transit system will soon have a much more uniform look. So get used to seeing the word "Sun" sprawled across the exterior of transit vehicles. Sun Connect for Pima County Rural Transit routes serving Ajo, Marana, San Xavier, Tucson Estates, and Green Valley/Sahuarita, and future neighborhood circulators in Marana and Oro Valley. Sun RideShare is the new name for RideShare, a vanpool and carpool program that is managed under Pima Association of Governments, which also manages the RTA.

The funding for the regional seamless system concept is $8.2 million and includes $2.9 million for the system branding, consolidated customer services and enhanced bus stop information.
