Sun Tran wants to know what riders think about some proposed fare changes.

The public transportation system is considering adding the three-day transit pass and the $25 worth of rides for $20 program as permanent fare options.

The transit system for metro Tucson area has scheduled seven open house events so people can meet staff and get more information.

Sun Tran marketing director Pat Richter says a pilot program conducted earlier this year showed a lot of interest in the three-day pass.

"Sales to out of town visitors was good," he said. "We were really encouraged to find that sales of the three-day pass to Tucson residents were just as strong."
