New Sun Shuttle schedule brochures are now available, offering passengers detailed route and schedule information effective through Feb. 13.

Route changes, including a reduced fare option for qualified passengers, were instituted Monday, a release said.

Sun Shuttle, the region's neighborhood transit service launched in May 2009, runs routes in Marana, Oro Valley, Sahuarita and Green Valley.

Along with existing routes, four routes formerly provided by Pima County Rural Transit began operating Monday under the Sun Shuttle brand.  Marana now has Sun Shuttle four routes, including the new Route 410 serving Anway / Trico, and Route 413 serving Marana along I-10. Route 430 serving Tucson Estates and Route 440 serving San Xavier are also new transit options for Sun Shuttle passengers.

Sun Shuttle is now offering reduced fares for seniors, Medicare cardholders, disabled and low-income individuals. Full fare one-way cash fares remain unchanged at $1.25 for regular service and $2.50 for deviated service.  Qualified low-income passengers with the proper identification are eligible for the 40-cent regular fare, and 80-cent fare for deviated service. Seniors 65 years and older, persons with disabilities and Medicare cardholders are also eligible for the 40-cent regular service fare, but must pay the full fare deviated service price of $2.50.

To be eligible for the low-income fare, passengers must obtain a Sun Tran Transit ID from the City of Tucson Special Services Office, 35 West Alameda, Tucson, 791-4100. Deviated service passengers must obtain a valid ADA Paratransit Eligibility ID from the City of Tucson's ADA Eligibility Office, 791-5409.

The Marana capital improvements improvements are expected to take years to complete as Marana finds the best plan of action to complete the projects and fund the improvements. Do you think this is a good idea?

The town of Marana is looking at ways to do capital improvements to the oldest neighborhoods in Marana. Over the next few months the town will survey older neighborhoods and see what amenities they need and form a plan to make sure neighborhoods have paved roads, sidewalks, adequate drainage, lighting and even pocket parks. “We want to make sure that every neighborhood has a base standard for infrastructure,” said Marana Town Manager Gilbert Davidson. The improvements are expected to take years to complete as Marana finds the best plan of action to complete the projects and fund the improvements. Do you think this is a good idea?

How do you feel about a potential memorial art project to honor our community’s bravest men and women?

During the Jan. 20 town council meeting, a vote was unanimously passed to look into the feasibility of a “Memorial Public Art Project,” at the request of Oro Valley resident Dick Eggerding to potentially be placed somewhere in the town to honor military veterans and first responders. Though no concrete plans were then ready to act on, there was a show of overwhelming support for such project from residents and staff alike during the council meeting. In an effort to poll to community at-large, The Explorer would like to know how you feel about a potential memorial art project to honor our community’s bravest men and women.
