The RTA’s Sun Shuttle neighborhood service was established to allow outlying communities and neighborhoods to connect with mass transit services offered by Sun Tran, Sun Express and the Sun Link streetcar.

Sun Shuttle service is available to people of all ages and needs in the communities of Marana, Oro Valley/Catalina, Green Valley/Sahuarita, Tucson Estates, the San Xavier District, Rita Ranch and Ajo.

Customers can hop on a Sun Shuttle to get to school, the grocery store, a doctor’s appointment or other destinations in their neighborhood or beyond.

The RTA contracts with Sun Tran to operate the Sun Shuttle service. Ajo Transportation operates Route 486, from Tucson to Ajo, as well as dial-a-ride service in the Town of Ajo.

Sun Shuttle Dial-a-Ride

Sun Shuttle Dial-a-Ride provides door-to-door, paratransit service to persons with disabilities living outside the Tucson city limits or to City of Tucson residents needing to reach destinations outside the city limits. In 2019, Sun Shuttle Dial-a-Ride provided over 142,000 passenger trips throughout the greater Tucson region.

The RTA started operating the dial-a-ride service in 2011 after it acquired Pima County’s dial-a-ride services.

Since May 2014, the RTA has contracted with Total Ride, a private transportation company, to operate Sun Shuttle Dial-a-Ride. Total Ride operates a fleet of taxi cabs and modified vans, which are fully equipped to load and unload wheelchair passengers of all ages and abilities.

You can plan your trip or locate your Shuttle by using the Trip Shot app. The app is free to download on Android or IOS.
