About Sun Tran

1. ACCEPTANCE OF TERMS

The following Terms of Service (“Terms”) are a legal agreement between Professional Transit Management/Veolia Transportation, Inc., d/b/a Sun Tran (collectively, “We,” “Us,” or “Our”) and You or Your third party designee (collectively, “You,” “Your,” or “Yourself”) relating to the access and use of Our website (www.suntran.com) or a mobile version thereof (collectively, the "Site"), and the access and use of services provided by the Site. By clicking on the “I ACCEPT” button below and/or by You accessing or using the Site or by accessing or using a service provided by the Site, You signify that You have read, understand and agree to be bound by these Terms. Please read these Terms carefully prior to using or obtaining any information, materials or services from Our website.

We reserve the right to update and change these Terms from time to time. We may not explicitly notify You of changes and as such, We encourage You to review these Terms from time to time as it is Your responsibility to regularly check this page to determine if there have been changes to these Terms and to review such changes. Your continued access or use of the Site after any such change constitutes Your acceptance of the new Terms.

2. DESCRIPTION OF WEBSITE SERVICE

The Site allows You to purchase and reload SunGO® Cards, purchase SunGO® Tickets, obtain information relating to Sun Tran bus fares, route maps and schedules, and any other feature and content available on the Site (collectively, the “Service”). You acknowledge and agree that the form and nature of the Service which We provide may change from time to time without prior notice to You. Unless explicitly stated otherwise, any new feature that augments or enhances the current Service, including the release of new tools and resources, shall be subject to these Terms.

3. DESCRIPTION OF REGISTERED SUNGO® CARD SERVICE

The Site also allows You to create an account to register a SunGO® Card in order to obtain the SunGO® Card program benefits such as balance protection, one ride safety net, and Auto Buy (the “Registered SunGO® Card Service”). For SunGO® ID & Card holders, the SunGO® ID & Card is automatically registered when the SunGO® ID & Card is issued. As such, SunGO® ID & Card holders can access and use the Registered SunGO® Card Service. For clarity, a “Sun GO ID & Card” is different from a “SunGO® Card.” Only Our Special Services Office can issue a SunGO® ID & Card to qualifying passengers based on an approved application. Qualifying passengers for the SunGO® ID & Card are passengers who may qualify for the Economy Fare Program as a low-income rider, senior 65 years or older, Medicare Card holder, or a person with a disability.

You acknowledge and agree that the form and nature of the Registered SunGO® Card Service which We provide may change from time to time without prior notice to You. Unless explicitly stated otherwise, any new feature that augments or enhances the current Registered SunGO® Card Service, including the release of new tools and resources, shall be subject to these Terms.
