Streetcar at University Blvd & Park Ave



In 1903 Louise Marshall bought shares of Streetcar Railway stock because as an asthma sufferer, the horse and buggies stirred up too much dust for her. She also had a vision that the University should be connected to the downtown business district by streetcar. This connection between the two areas ran until 1940. The Sun Link modern streetcar that currently runs today launched in 2014 and its 3.9 mile route connects five of Tucson’s most unique districts.
