Starting Monday, March 19, new service changes will begin for several Sun Shuttle routes. The Regional Transportation Authority Board recently approved the proposed changes to increase efficiency and improve on-time performance. Current schedules and routes, set to expire March 6, will remain active until the new effective date.

Updated Sun Shuttle brochures are available now at and will be available on the vehicles starting Monday, March 12. Brochures provide passengers current fare information and detailed route schedules. The new schedule information will be effective through August 4.

Five years ago the 10,000-resident community of Picture Rocks petitioned RTA for public transportation. We pointed out then that route 411 had hardly any riders, and that cutting the number of runs in half and extending service out to our community, including Marana High School. could work to everyone's benefit. RTA said No. Instead they continued to waste money on a little-used route and deprived our community of a needed service. Fr this we pay an RTA sales tax. For shame!
