  1. Standing room only today (twice ) on Sun Link as we went from UA to Downtown for Tucson Meet Yourself, which wasn’t well attended in the daytime, but thousands there tonight for the music & food. Sun Link should offer more free days throughout the year, as many of today’s riders were obviously new, first time riders. Last day of Tucson Meet Yourself tomorrow, hopefully w/o rain.

  2. Woo hoo == FREE rides all day today, despite the rain. Sun Link starts up soon at 8 a.m. and will continue to 2 a.m. tomorrow morning. Every half hour till 10 a.m. then every 15 minutes till midnight. Should be lots of fun for Tucson Meet Yourself, 2nd Saturday Downtown, Celebration of the Fairies, Film Fest Tucson — all downtown.
