Streetcar Wins Environmental Award

The Sun Link streetcar recently won the President’s Award at the Arizona Forward Environmental Excellence Awards. The ceremony was held in Phoenix last Saturday. Judges selected Sun Link for top honors because the project is vital to improving the look and feel of Downtown Tucson, providing a boost to the community’s infrastructure. The streetcar also won top honors in the Healthy Communities Multimodal Transportation & Connectivity category.

More than 120 entries were received for the only Arizona sustainability-focused awards program. Nominations came from 30 communities across the state.
