Ride new Tucson streetcar Sun Link for free for 3 days



Well, the day is almost upon us when the modern streetcar Sun Link will start operation – July 25.  For the first 3 days, anyone (you too!) can ride it for free.  Just hop on & off between the Mercado San Agustin (west end) and the University of Arizona Health Center (east end).  In between of course is downtown (Congress Street and Broadway Blvd.), 4th Avenue shopping district, Main Gate Square, and of the course the UA.  Free rides start about 10 a.m. after the ceremonies on July 25.

After these 3 days consider a monthly pass or all day passes for $4 (good for 24 hours) to jump on & off.  Happy riding, even in the heat.
