Living near the streetcar line is ideal for many people including University of Arizona students, staff, and faculty, as well as employees at University Medical Center and anyone who works Downtown.
The streetcar is expected to run until 2am Thursday through Saturday, and shutting down earlier Sunday through Wednesday. At peak times there should only be 10 minutes between streetcars. Each streetcar will hold up to 180 people at one time and is ADA compliant. The route is about 4 miles long, with about 100,000 people living within a half mile from the line. Transfers to the SunTran bus system are available as well.
There are 4 different segments of the route:
- West of Downtown Tucson
- Downtown area – Congress St. / Broadway Blvd.
- 4th Avenue / Main Gate
- University of Arizona / University Medical Center
