TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) - Monday is the first day Tucson modern streetcar passengers will have to pay to ride.  

Starting at 7 a.m. this morning, streetcars will start picking up paying passengers who will have to be ready with their Sun-Go passes.  

For those who checked it out for free over the weekend, today will notice some new people on board. Fare enforcement officers will be checking to make sure everyone has a pass.  A one day pass is $4.  

Trying to get around this system will cost even more than that.  A city spokesperson says non-paying riders will be fined between $100 to $2,500.  

According to those who rode over the free weekend, many said they would ride again.  

"I would, I have grandchildren and this is a treat we like the oldy, but you can't change progress, progress is good," said rider Barbara Romero.
