TUCSON, AZ (KOLD News 13) - The 4th Avenue Spring Street Fair takes place from Friday, March 22 to Sunday, March 24 and to avoid parking and traffic hassles, Tucsonans and visitors can take public transit. The Sun Link streetcar and Sun Tran buses will offer stops near the event, making getting there easy. Transit is also a cost-effective alternative to driving or rideshare services.

Take Sun Link to one of the following stations for a quick walk to the street fair entrance:

  • University Boulevard/3rd Avenue
  • 4th Avenue/9th Street

Passengers can also take the following Sun Tran routes to the downtown Ronstadt Transit Center and transfer to Sun Link:

  • Routes 1, 2, 3, 4, 6, 7, 8, 10, 12, 16, 18, 19, 21, 22, 23 & 25

Please note if riding Sun Tran, some routes may stop service prior to the end of the fair; call the Customer Service Center or visit suntran.com for schedule information.

The temporary route adjustments start at 1 p.m. on Thursday, March 21 through end of day Sunday, March 24. Sun Tran buses will shuttle passengers around the street fair closures and connect to the next streetcar stop.
