MARANA, Ariz. -- A public meeting to discuss proposed fare changes for Sun Shuttle was unattended Monday night.

No one but the media showed up for Monday night's RTA meeting in Marana for public comment.

Sun Shuttle, Sun Express and special needs transportation fees are set to go up in conjunction with Sun Tran fare increases in the City of Tucson.

"The people are using both the Sun Shuttle services and the Expresses. We see people that are using it to get to and from work and also to run errands through the middle of the day," said Transit Planning and Operations Manager Jeremy Papgua.

The remaining meetings are scheduled for Wednesday in Sahuarita from 4 to 6 P.M. and Thursday in Oro Valley from 4 to 6 P.M.
