Free rides on Sun Link

On Saturday, July 25, Sun Link will celebrate its one-year anniversary with one day of free rides sponsored by Friends of the Tucson Streetcar, Tucson Medical Center and Tucson Electric Power.

Sun Link's opening weekend last year drew a total of 60,000 passengers. On May 21, Sun Link celebrated its millionth rider, ahead of projected ridership numbers.

The Sun Link streetcar project, which was funded through the RTA's $2.1 billion RTA plan and federal dollars, was co-managed by the City of Tucson and the RTA through construction and service launch. The RTA continues to provide annual operations' funding of the streetcar system.
