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.
A strike is still possible for Sun Tran.
Transit services, including Sun Tran, Sun Van and Sun Shuttle, will operate on a regular weekday schedule during Martin Luther King Jr. Day on Monday, Jan. 21. With the exception of Lost & Found, all other services will be in operation as regularly scheduled:
Sun Tran buses will operate on a Sunday schedule and Sun Shuttle or Sun Express routes will not be in operation on Thursday, November 22, in observance of Thanksgiving Day.
Ride Sun Tran’s UA Football Shuttle to the South Carolina State game and arrive in front of Arizona Stadium on 6th Street just steps from the entrance. Passengers can park and ride from Hi Corbett Field located at 22nd Street and Randolph Way. Passengers are encouraged to park on the east side of the baseball field. Be prepared for long lines and wait.
