TUCSON MEDICAL CENTER SPONSORS FREE SUN LINK RIDES ON SHOP
LOCAL SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 28 (press release)
TUCSON, Ariz. – Save your cash for holiday shopping and ride the Sun Link Tucson Streetcar for free on Shop Local Saturday, November 28.
Tucson Medical Center (TMC) is once again sponsoring a day of free streetcar rides, as it did on July 25, 2015, the first anniversary of the public launch of Sun Link.
“As Tucson’s nonprofit community hospital, Tucson Medical Center understands the importance of supporting local businesses,” said Julia Strange, TMC’s vice president of community benefit. “Shop Local Saturday connects Tucsonans with the products and services available in our own backyard and strengthens our economy by investing and circulating our money here. Sun Link makes our community healthier by reducing air pollution and encouraging walking and riding instead of driving. TMC is proud to partner with Sun Link and support Shop Local Saturday.”
Sun Link connects riders to five unique districts along its 3.9-mile route: the University of Arizona, Main Gate Square, 4th Avenue, Downtown and Mercado San Agustin. Convenient stops allow riders to visit more than 150 shops and 100 eateries, 30 plus bars and clubs, and more than 30 museums and galleries. Motorists can park once and not worry about finding parking again while Sun Link takes them where they want to go. The streetcar runs from 8 a.m. on Saturdays to 2 a.m.
For additional Sun Link information and for trip planning assistance, call the Customer Service Center at (520) 792-9222 (for persons with hearing and speech impairments, call TDD: 520-628-1565).
