University of Arizona football fans have a new transit option for this season’s UA home football games – the Sun Link Tucson Streetcar.  Prior to kickoff, fans can experience the dining, entertainment and retail opportunities in the Main Gate Square, Fourth Avenue, Downtown and Mercado District and then board the streetcar from any one of the 23 stops along the 3.9-mile long route to get to campus. Once on campus, Arizona Stadium is a short walk from the Second Street and Highland Avenue streetcar stop.

Football fans can also park downtown in the Pennington Street Parking Garage, 110 E. Pennington Street and receive a parking discount by showing a UA football ticket, as well as purchase an all-day pass to ride the Sun Link Streetcar to the game.  Cash fares are not accepted on the streetcar. For parking garage information and discounted rates, visit www.tucsonaz.gov/parkwise. Fans can also purchase a SunGO Card online at http://www.suntran.com/" target="_blank">www.suntran.com to ride the streetcar. All-day passes to ride the streetcar can be purchased for $4 at any one streetcar stops or at the Ronstadt Transit Center.

Football fans can also use Sun Tran buses to attend home games. Please visit http://www.suntran.com/" target="_blank">www.suntran.com for route times for Saturday night games as some routes discontinue service prior to the end of late games. Several Sun Tran routes serve the UA area and are only a short walk to the stadium or an easy transfer to the Sun Link streetcar:

  • Route 1 – Glenn/Swan
  • Route 3 – Sixth Street/Wilmot
  • Route 4 – Speedway
  • Route 6 – South Park Avenue/ North First Avenue
  • Route 9 – Grant
  • Route 15 – Campbell

The cost to ride Sun Tran is $1.50 one-way for full fare passengers, 50 cents one-way for seniors 65 years and older, Medicare cardholders, disabled persons and low-income individuals with a SunGO ID & Card.  Children five years of age and younger ride free with a paying passenger.

For Sun Tran passenger convenience, park-and-ride locations are available throughout the community.  Please visit www.suntran.com/commuter_park.php for a detailed list of locations. 

As a federally funded transit system, Sun Tran is prohibited from competing with private charter companies interested in providing shuttle services. This year due to the interest of a charter company in running the UA Football Shuttle – which typically runs from Hi Corbett and other locations in the community, Sun Tran is unable to operate this service.

Passengers are advised to consult the Ride Guide, visit www.suntran.com, or call the Customer Service Center at (520) 792-9222 (for person’s with hearing and speech impairments, call TDD: 520-628-1565) for trip planning assistance or more information. For transportation options provided by UA, call the UA Parking and Transportation office at 626-PARK.or visit arizonawildcats.com/parking.
