Ariz.'s Sun Link streetcar to mark one year in operation

Posted on July 15, 2015

On Saturday, Tucson’s Sun Link streetcar will celebrate one year in service. In celebration of the streetcar’s first anniversary, Friends of Tucson Streetcar, Tucson Medical Center and Tucson Electric Power will sponsor free rides on Sun Link.

Sun Link opened to the public on July 25, 2014 and had an estimated 17,000 riders during its opening day and a total of 60,000 passengers over the first three days of streetcar’s inaugural weekend. Sun Link celebrated its millionth boarding passenger on May 21, 2015, ahead of projected ridership numbers.

Since the launch of Sun Link streetcar, approximately 1.1 million passengers have enjoyed the ride.

Tucsonans have helped the streetcar exceed ridership expectations while experts have credited Sun Link’s positive impact with the growth and development to downtown Tucson.
