James McGinnis & Shellie Ginn
James McGinnis, Transit Mobility Management Planner at Pima Association of Governments, who will be joined by Shellie Ginn, City of Tucson Project Manager for the modern streetcar, Sun Link, will talk about the “green” benefits of transit, an update on the streetcar project and overall Regional Transportation Authority-funded (RTA) transit improvements to further benefit the environment. The RTA is committed to expanding and improving transit options in the Tucson region by increasing Sun Tran evening and weekend service, and extending RTA Sun Shuttle options to all surrounding jurisdictions, connecting people to the central Sun Tran system. The streetcar, which will operate between the west side of downtown at the Mercado District and the University of Arizona Health Sciences Center will serve the 100,000 people who live, work or play in the area. I’m looking forward to this show and hope you will join us!
