There’s a lot of exciting stuff going on in downtown Tucson this weekend. And luckily, the streetcar will be there to help.

The Sun Link streetcar will offer free rides all day Saturday, Oct. 13.

That means visitors will be able to go to the TENWEST Festival, Second Saturdays, Tucson Meet Yourself, and dozens of downtown restaurants and bars — without having to find parking near all the madness.

Folks can park near the 3.9-mile streetcar route, hop on the Sun Link free of charge from 8 a.m. to 2 a.m., and enjoy the rest of the day worry-free.

Visit for more information about the streetcar.
