  1. Woohoo: happy to see lots and lots of people riding free on Sun Link yesterday. We caught it at E. 2nd St/Cherry Ave. and rode all the way down to the Mercado San Agustin, then back to Main Gate Square. Wish there would be more free days on Sun Link’s 4 mile route. There was even a Fare Enforcement Officer on board, probably just to make sure everyone acted orderly, doing their shopping and game watching (UA vs. ASU at 2:30 to 6 p.m.)
