Ride the Streetcar Free This Saturday

Enjoy free rides on the Sun Link streetcar during Shop Local Saturday. Tucson Medical Center once again is sponsoring a day of free streetcar rides, as it did on July 25, the first anniversary of the public launch of Sun Link.

The streetcar connects riders to five districts along its 3.9-mile route, including 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, more than 30 bars and clubs, and more than 30 museums and galleries.

The streetcar runs Saturday from 8 a.m. until 2 a.m. Sunday. For additional Sun Link information and trip planning assistance, call the Customer Service Center at (520) 792-9222. For people with hearing and speech impairments, call TDD: 520-628-1565.
