Sun Tran is the public transit system serving the city of Tucson, Arizona. Sun Tran traces its history to 1905, when the Tucson Rapid Transit Company assumed operations of the horse-drawn streetcar system in town, converting it to electric streetcars. By the 1930s, the streetcar lines were converted to buses. The city of Tucson acquired Tucson Rapid Transit in 1969. A separate company, Old Pueblo Transit, which served primarily Tucson's South Side, was acquired from Emery C. Johnson by the city of Tucson in 1978 and its operations folded into Sun Tran.
