“We are excited about the partnership with 7-Eleven, which will prove very beneficial for our passengers,” said Katrina Heineking, Sun Tran General Manager.  “7-Eleven is located throughout our community, providing many more options for passengers to purchase bus passes.” 
Ray Kruckner, market manager for 7-Eleven stores in Arizona, said, “The idea came from our customers who asked that our stores offer this service because many of our locations are near bus stops.”
With the addition of the 7-Eleven stores, there are more than 50 locations for passengers to purchase Sun Tran bus pass products.  With the closure of the information booths at Sun Tran’s three transit centers, additional pass sales locations are being considered to further enhance passenger convenience.
