November 20, 2015

StreetcarVERT-Proof11-16-15bTucson Medical Center is once again sponsoring a day of free streetcar rides on Shop Local Saturday, November 28.

Save your cash and ride the Sun Link Tucson Streetcar for free. Riders can enjoy a day of holiday shopping and support local merchants throughout Downtown, Mercado, 4th Avenue and Main Gate.

“As Tucson’s nonprofit community hospital, Tucson Medical Center understands the importance of supporting local businesses,” said Julia Strange, TMC’s vice president of community benefit. “Shop Local Saturday connects Tucsonans with the products and services available in our own backyard and strengthens our economy by investing and circulating our money here. Sun Link makes our community healthier by reducing air pollution and encouraging walking and riding instead of driving. TMC is proud to partner with Sun Link and support Shop Local Saturday.”

Sun Link connects riders to five unique districts along its 3.9-mile route: 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, 30 plus bars and clubs, and more than 30 museums and galleries. There are 11,000 parking spots along the streetcar corridor so it’s easy and convenient to park and ride Sun Link. The streetcar runs from 8 a.m. to 2 a.m. on Saturdays.
