Message from a Bus Rider, V5

Our fifth video comes from Lisa.

*Editor’s Note: Lisa’s message is especially important because it shows that Sun Tran has not effectively put the SunGo cards into peoples hands which they were supposed to do for free to help with the elimination of paper transfers. Lisa also mentions how she has to get to Ronstadt, using fare and time, to be able to put money on her card – this is correct and is a real problem. So the City, because they haven’t bothered to communicate effectively or put the cards and access to use them in the hands of bus riders, is starting off with riders feeling they have already lost transfers and now are going to have fares increased too. That’s a lose/lose situation for bus riders and needs to be taken seriously. 

As we lead up to the decision by Tucson’s City Council on whether and how to raise bus fares on September 20, TBRU will publish a Video Blog everyday. We know that if our City Council Members would come to the transit centers and talk to bus riders or get on the bus that they would think differently about how to best manage and grow our transit system. Please watch it, share this blog post and make a call to Mayor and Council urging them to not raise the fares.

El quinta video es de Lisa.

Mientras esperamos la decisión del Consejo de la Ciudad acerca de los precios de los camiones en Septiembre 20, TBRU publicara un video todos los días, sabemos que si los Miembros del Consejo vinieran al centro donde están los camiones y hablaran con los pasajeros o se subieran al camión ellos pensarían diferente acerca de como mejorar el sistema de tránsito. Por favor mírelo, comparta el video y llame al Alcalde y al Consejo y pídales que no aumenten los precios de los camiones.
