Keeping You Safe
It is Sun Tran's mission to provide safe and reliable transportation for the citizens of Tucson. Here's what we're doing to help keep you safe while utilizing our services:
Safe Work Environment
The safety and health of Sun Tran employees and passengers is always a top priority. In 2017, the Arizona Division of Occupational Safety and Health (ADOSH) conducted a consultation in the Sun Tran Northwest Bus Maintenance Facility (NWBMF) to ensure a safe work environment. ADOSH looked for both serious and non-serious hazards to employees, reviewing all previously completed air sampling reports and remediation activity as well as performing additional air sampling. After completing their analysis ADOSH found no health hazards during the visit of the NWBMF regarding mold. Read the report here.
All of Sun Tran's active fleet and transit centers are monitored by video surveillance cameras. The presence of these cameras contributes to a safer environment for our passengers.
Sun Tran vehicles are equipped with video and audio surveillance systems located in several places. These video and audio recordings are used for operator and passenger safety and security, training, investigations and other business purposed.
Bus locator system
Sun Tran installed the Automated Vehicle Location (AVL) system in 1999, a computer program that tracks every bus at all times. This adds to the safety of the passengers and decreases the response time in the event of an emergency.
The Tucson Police Department routinely monitors Sun Tran's transit centers and rides select buses to ensure your safety while on these properties. There are more than 29,000 passenger trips from the Ronstadt, Tohono Tadai and Roy Laos transit centers each day.
