Officials: Be the one-millionth streetcar rider, win a prize!

TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) - Those who haven't taken a ride on the Tucson streetcar might now have some motivation.

After just nine months since the nearly four-mile track has been in operation, the streetcar expects its one-millionth passenger to board within the next two weeks.

Streetcar officials say that lucky passenger will receive special gifts once he or she hops on board.

Current Sun Link ridership passed 955,000 passengers, which officials said is ahead of its anticipated numbers.

Earlier in April, the street car won the Oustanding Transit Organization award from the Arizona Transit Association.
