Tucson streetcar line to launch in late July

TUCSON, Ariz. — Passenger service is scheduled to begin July 25 for the
new streetcar line in Tucson.

The Arizona Daily Star reported that the last Sun Link
vehicle arrived more than a week ago and will undergo the same equipment and
system testing as the previous cars.

After that process is completed, the vehicle will join the other streetcars as
workers look to fix any other bugs before passenger service begins.

Streetcar operators also are running the vehicles constantly to see if the cars
maintain a 10-minute schedule.

In addition, 11 of the 17 streetcar operators are fully certified, while the
rest are in the final phase of their training.
