Reduced Fares

Sun Tran Services Are Currently Free

All Sun Tran, Sun Express, Sun Shuttle, Sun Van and Sun Link transit services are free of charge until further notice. The below instructions about reduced fares apply when fare collection resumes.

Sun Tran Reduced Fares For Seniors

Sun Tran offers reduced fares for seniors 65 and older through our Economy Fare program. Riders who qualify for the reduced fare pay 75 cents for a one-way trip and get a free transfer for Routes 1-99. To be eligible for a reduced fare, seniors must visit the Special Services Office at 35 W. Alameda to obtain the SunGO ID Card.

When paying the economy cash fare whether with value or a pass on your SunGO ID Card or with cash, please tap your SunGO ID Card to the fare box and show the ID to the driver as proof of reduced fare qualification.

Reduced Fare Exceptions

Please note that reduced fares are not available on Sun Express Routes 101X-204X. If paying with a pass on an express route, a surcharge will be required.

Safety & Accessibility

Safety & Convenience

Safety and service are Sun Tran’s top priorities. Sun Tran’s fleet and transit centers are monitored by video surveillance cameras for your comfort and safety. You might want to consider riding with a friend until you are more comfortable riding the system. It may be more convenient to travel late mornings or early afternoons as it is usually less crowded. For easy seating, the first seats behind the driver are designated for seniors and people with disabilities.

Accessibility & Mobility

Your ability to travel is important to us, so all Sun Tran buses offer accessibility features for riders with special needs.

  • All Sun Tran buses are equipped with lifts for boarding ease.
  • Buses “kneel” to make boarding more convenient.
