TUCSON - Tucson's $197 million streetcar system will start running Friday.
Rides on the nearly 4-mile line will be free for the first three days. Then it will cost $1.50 to ride one way or $4 for an all-day pass.
Construction began in 2012 on the Sun Link.
Politicians including U.S. Reps. Raul Grijalva and Ron Barber, D-Ariz., were in Tucson on Monday as part of a series of events this week celebrating the start of the line.
