Sun Shuttle Launches Marana/Avra Valley Dial-a-RideJune 6, 2022
Sun Shuttle is upgrading transit service in Marana/Avra Valley with a new curb-to-curb shared ride service. The Marana/Avra Valley Dial-a-Ride service launches Monday, 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. The service is open to the public with no residency or other qualifications necessary.
“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.”
Riders have the flexibility of booking trips to popular stops established under the previous route service, or to a specific location.
The service area includes Interstate 10 from Cochise Canyon Trail to Tangerine Road, along parts of Avra Valley Road including the Marana Regional Airport, destinations west of Roadrunner Elementary School, and more.
“This service is the result of feedback from the community,” said McLaughlin. “We listened to the needs of our neighbors and are excited to launch Dial-a-Ride in the Marana/Avra Valley area.”
Reservations: (520) 792-9222
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.
