Dear Mayor and Council,

Regarding Item #7 put on the April 4th, Study Session put on the agenda by Mayor Regina Romero and Lane Santa Cruz: "Discussion and Direction Relating to Fare-Free Transit for Sun Tran, Sun Link and Sun Van (City Wide)"


FREE Bus fare is not free when you raise taxes and impose levy’s on citizens and businesses. We simply cannot afford more taxes. This is bad policy for our community and is bad for Tucson.

I want busses to be safe and clean again.  The free bus program needs to stop as it is not safe for drivers or riders and has become a method to transport fentanyl around our community. Organized retail theft is being facilitated by the bus being free as criminals are timing their theft and getaway with the arrival of the free bus.

In the past there have been plentiful options for free and reduced fares for those in need that apply and qualify.

    I work in retail and I’m confronted with retail crime daily as these thieves, mainly homeless travel from store to store to steal and return items to support their lifestyle. I can’t afford the potential added tax burden with all the new utility fees and price hikes on everything. It needs to stop now!

    There’s no such thing as a free bus ride. It’s only free for the mooches that use it. Paid for by the rest of us.

    I’m totally against the free buss service. Maybe you should ride the buss to work and see what we’re talking about.

    Email sent, shared with family and friends..
    However, received automatic replies from Ward 6, the Mayors office and even though I got an automatic reply from Ward 3 nothing was on it.. I figured I would so how do we actually know they (staff) has even read it..
    But that will NOT deter me from speaking up anymore… Despite what it may do to my business… 🕊
