In January 2009, the RTA announced a rebranded look for Sun Tran to tie into all regional transit, including Sun Express, Sun Shuttle, Sun Rideshare, Sun Van and the Tucson Modern Streetar - Sun Link. The new SunGO Card is a direct result of the regional seamless effort and can be used for Sun Link, Sun Tran, Sun Express and Sun Shuttle services.

In May 2009, the RTA introduced a new neighborhood transit circulator service in the communities of Marana, Oro Valley/Catalina and Green Valley/Sahuarita. The Sun Shuttle service has community routes with destination stops for medical, retail and recreational access and also connects with the Sun Tran fixed-route service. Sun Tran completed the new $32 million bus storage and maintenance facility in October 2009. The building is funded with funds from the RTA and Federal Transit Administration.
