TUCSON, Ariz. — Tucsonans can hop on the Sun Link streetcar for free this Saturday!

The downtown transportation system is celebrating its 5-year milestone.

The free rides are offered from 8:00 a.m. to 2:00 a.m. and are sponsored by Rio Nuevo.

“I can’t think of a better day for Tucsonans to explore shops and restaurants in downtown than Sun Link’s Anniversary,” says Fletcher McCusker, Board Chair for Rio Nuevo. “The streetcar provides an easy and comfortable ride through Tucson’s major entertainment hubs. There’s so much to discover and Sun Link gives you access to it all.”

To continue the celebration, events will be happening along the streetcar's route, including brunch at the Mercado District, Sun Link tours, a 4th Avenue block party, story time at the UA Bookstore and a concert at Main Gate Square.
