Streetcar on its Way to Tucson

August 27, 2013 |

The City of Tucson has authorized the shipment of the first streetcar from manufacturer OIW/United Streetcar. Streetcar 101, Tucson’s first Made in America Sun Link streetcar, is being transported to Tucson on a special flatbed trailer over five days. Once the streetcar arrives, it will be unloaded at the Maintenance & Storage Facility, where a team will reassemble it and prepare it for approximately four to six weeks of testing. A First-Streetcar Arrival Community Celebration is being planned for early September, with a date and specifics coming soon.
