At today’s Mayor & Council meeting, we affirmed that all public transit will remain free through the end of the year. We have kept public transit free since the start of the pandemic to support #EssentialWorkers and others who rely on public transit to travel throughout Tucson. pic.twitter.com/I2gJBOGFYU— Regina Romero (@TucsonRomero) June 9, 2021
