Sun Link Celebrates
One Million Passengers
Anna Bjornsen is Sun Link’s millionth passenger, boarding streetcar 104 at 12:20 p.m. on Thursday, May 21, 2015.
Mayor Jonathan Rothschild and Sun Link dignitaries surprised Anna as she boarded at the 4th Avenue and 4th Street stop.
The lucky millionth passenger received balloons, a t-shirt, plus an annual SunGO pass for unlimited use on the Sun Link streetcar, Sun Tran bus system and select Sun Shuttle routes.
"The one millionth passenger trip marks a significant milestone for Sun Link," said Mayor Rothschild. "Less than a year after launch, the people of Tucson have made the streetcar a popular mode of transportation, and the streetcar has helped to make downtown a success - spurring economic development all along the line."
