Shame there is little to no dedicated ROW.

Its a streetcar, not LRT. They rarely have their own dedicated ROW.

The only difference between the term 'streetcar' and european 'tram' is that the first almost never have ROW. Give it some lanes of its own in the burbs and you have yourself a tram/lrt.

Tucson's streetcar exceeds ridership expectations


A Sun Link streetcar rolls through Main Gate Square at the intersection of East University Boulevard and North Park Avenue.


March 15, 2015 9:00 pm • By Patrick McNamara

After seven months in operation, Tucson’s Sun Link streetcar appears to have exceeded ridership estimates.

Streetcar ridership has been averaging more than 4,000 people each weekday, the Tucson Department of Transportation’s Jeremy Papuga told the Pima Association of Government Management Committee last week.

The city had estimated 3,600 weekday riders.

On weekends with large downtown area events, Papuga said the streetcar averages 8,000 daily riders.

Cost recovery is about on target, too, Papuga said.

Currently, fare boxes are on course to bring in $1.2 million per year. With annual operations costs at about $4.2 million, that’s in line with cost recovery ratios for most transit systems.

What was the expected ridership? 4000 sounds rather modest.

The bus strike lasted for 42 days. I am surprised streetcar ridership did not increase during this period. It's a pathetic figure of 4,000 riders per day that hasn't moved throughout the year.

The numbers haven't been provided to the Apta , so there is no way of knowing if they went up or down...
