Sun Tran offering curb-to-curb service to Marana
Sun Shuttle is upgrading options in Marana with a new curb-to-curb shared-ride service.
The Marana/Avra Valley Dial-a-Ride service launches June 13 and replaces the former Sun Shuttle Route 410. With Dial-a-Ride, anyone can book a trip to any location in the service area.
“Curb-to-curb allows a customized public transportation experience,” said Preston McLaughlin, the senior transportation planner for Pima Association of Governments, which manages the Regional Transportation Authority. “This upgraded level of service opens up many new destination options for our riders.”
The service area includes Interstate 10 from Cochise Canyon Trail to Tangerine Road, along parts of Avra Valley Road. It includes the Marana Regional Airport, destinations west of Roadrunner Elementary School, and more.
“This service is the result of feedback from the community,” McLaughlin said. “We listened to the needs of our neighbors and are excited to launch Dial-a-Ride in Marana.”
To use the new service, riders should make a reservation via phone or on the free Sun Shuttle Dial-a-Ride app. Riders are encouraged to schedule trips one to seven days in advance. Same-day service is available on a limited basis.
For reservations call (520) 922 - 9222 or download the Sun Link application.
