Sun Link Tucson Streetcar

First Sun Link Streetcar on its Way to Tucson

(August 26, 2013) The City of Tucson has authorized the shipment of the first streetcar from manufacturer OIW/United Streetcar. Streetcar 101, Tucson’s first Made in America Sun Link streetcar, is being transported to Tucson on a special flatbed trailer over five days. Once the streetcar arrives, it will be unloaded at the Maintenance & Storage Facility, where a team will reassemble it and prepare it for approximately four to six weeks of testing.

A First-Streetcar Arrival Community Celebration is being planned for early September, with a date and specifics coming soon. Look for the Streetcar Street-Smart public education campaign to prepare bicyclists, motorists, pedestrians and others for streetcar testing on our newly-installed tracks. Street-Smart safety information is being put in place now: posters, brochures, how-to videos, PSA’s, social media and website content.
