3-Day Transit Pass Convenient for Travel to Gem Shows That Start Tomorrow

Gem Show shoppers can skip the hassles of traffic and parking with a 3-Day Transit Pass. The pass provides unlimited rides on Sun Tran buses and the Sun Link streetcar, and it's valid for 72 consecutive hours once activated on a transit vehicle. Sun Tran and Sun Link routes connect to several Gem Show events and many of Tucson’s entertainment attractions.

Passengers can easily purchase a 3-Day Pass using the GoTucson Transit mobile app, or visiting a SunGO sales outlet or transit center ticket vending machine. A 3-Day Pass costs $10 ($11 when loaded on the app or $12 with a new SunGO Card).

The Tucson Gem, Mineral & Fossil Showcase begins tomorrow, Jan. 27, and continues through Sunday, Feb. 11. Shows take place at dozens of locations throughout the Tucson region. Most shows are open to the public with free admission (see the Official Gem Show Guide app). See the Park Tucson website for Gem Show parking and free GemRide shuttle information.
