TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) - On Friday, Dec. 7, from 7 a.m. to 1 p.m., Sun Link streetcar will not run between University Boulevard and Third Street and the Mercado District (Congress/Avenida del Convento) because of the memorial service honoring Deputy U.S. Marshal Chase White, who was killed in the line of duty.

Sun Tran will provide transportation services every 10 minutes during the closure to serve streetcar riders. The bus bridge will run parallel to the streetcar route and will drop off and pick up passengers near each of the streetcar stops. Sun Link supervisors will be on hand at each of the discontinued Sun Link stops to direct people to the bus bridges.

After 1 p.m., streetcar service will return to route adjustments made for the 4th Avenue Street Fair through end of day Sunday, Dec. 9. The bus bridge will connect riders to the streetcar in between University Boulevard and Third Street and Fourth Avenue and Ninth Street.
