Sun Tran is providing free shuttle service to McKale from El Con Mall and Hi Corbett Field and will return people to those sites after the event.
Teamsters 104, the union that represents the drivers, worked out a deal with Sun Tran to provide drivers' services at no cost to the city, because of the city's current budget crunch.
Andy Marshall, the state executive director of Local 104, said Sun Tran drivers working the shuttle service are volunteering their time. They are working extra hours in between shifts; some have come in off vacations and others offered to work on their day off.
"We offered our services to work for free," Marshall said.
Volunteer drivers will be coming and going all day to drive the shuttles before and after the memorial event at UA.Props to Local 104. And a reminder that it's just another way unions serve their communities.
