One-millionth passenger on streetcar will be celebrated

TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) - Any day now, you could be the one-millionth passenger to board Tucson's Sun Link Streetcar.

Sun Link operators say a big surprise gift awaits that rider when it happens.

As of May 12, the ridership count was 979,120. At this rate, workers expect the ridership tally to hit the one-million mark around the middle of next week.

In about two months, the Tucson streetcar will celebrate its first anniversary. Staffers say in the past year of operation, they've seen more riders using the streetcar than expected.
