UA Carpool Program
The UA Carpool Program consists of three or more individuals sharing one permit on the majority of their campus commutes. Each member of the carpool also receives a number of free scratch-off permits per year, for use in designated parking areas (Zone 1 surface lots) on days when carpooling is impractical. Carpool members pay the permit price and have the reserved space fee waived.
For more information on UA carpools, contact Customer Relations at (520) 626.7275 or visit the Parking & Transportation website.
The UA and the City of Tucson partner to offer students discounts on Sun Tran, the city's bus system. This is an economical option if you live near a bus route and need a low-cost option to travel to and from the University.
Sun Tran Bus Passes are: $70 per semester, $112.00 from August to May (school year) and $156.00 for an annual pass.
Cat Tran Shuttles
Free shuttle service is available throughout campus, including a stop directly in front of McClelland Hall. For shuttle routes and Sun Tran bus passes, please visit the Parking and Transportation website or call 520.621.3137.
