Guess how many people rode Tucson's new Sun Link Streetcar opening day? 17,000.
City of Tucson officials calling it a tremendous first day.
The hours of operation on opening day were 10 a.m. to 2 a.m with up to eight streetcars operating on the four-mile long route.
The hours of operation for this weekend are 8 a.m. to 2 a.m. on Saturday, and 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. on Sunday.
Beginning Monday, July 28, 2014, Sun Link begins collecting fares with riders needing a SunGO card or a one-day SunGO pass available at the streetcar stops along the route.
The four-mile Sun Link Streetcar route connects five districts: the University of Arizona, Main Gate Square, Fourth Avenue, Downtown, and the Mercado.
