There are 1 comment on the Tuscon Citizen story from Mar 8, 2011, titled Tucson city council set to increase bus fares for the poor by 50%.... In it, Tuscon Citizen reports that:

I remember about two years ago I would pay $2 for day pass on Sun Tran. Now after raising the price to $3, the Tucson city council is set to raise the day pass again to $3.50, a 75% increase at a time when our economy is failing and more people need Sun Tran than ever.

These increases are mild as to what really should have happened,and the "poor" increase is only TWENTY CENTS,and poor is really like a person making $1350 a month so thats not really poor and as much as ths system is abused TWENTY CENTS is kind it really should have gone to %50 of the normal fare or been done away with,as we are only one of about 3 cities nation wide giving away this service.........fyi a family of 10 making OVER $81,000,are considered "low income" by this system....sad
