Old Pueblo Trolley is the name of both a Tucson organization that focuses on preserving Arizona mass transit history and the streetcar that it ran for almost two decades on a 1-mile track. I often rode this old streetcar between the University of Arizona and 4th Avenue and always enjoyed the experience. Operations suspended when construction started on a modern... More

OK to rent for a party. It does not go anywhere. Other people tried to get on for the ride and drinks. Soon the new street car will be open, but it cannot fit under the original route. The cars are from Japan. They mqy not be built to fit.

The historic street car is being replaced by Tucson's "Modern Street Car" system. I need more experience before I can write more

It used to be fun to take this trolley between 4th Avenue and the University. It's gone now due to construction of the Modern Streetcar in Tucson (aka SunLink), and I do not believe it will be coming back.

The UA students DO go to the bars via trolley, but the route does have a lot more to offer in its current short length. Once the downtown section is added it will make this more of a useful transportation option but in the meantime it is interesting to see the restored historic trolleys, as well as those being restored...

Fun particularly with kids (who loved seeing coins be flattened on track). Check days of operation. Sunday trolley ride, a pint & Irish music at Dubliner is a favorite weekend activity.

Sorry, Tucson. Trolleys are quaint, but the experience isn't worth the investment required. San Fran does it way better; why are we going here?

This is the worse example of city mass transit in the history of Trolley Cars. The City recently spent tens of millions of dollars laying new track,to ride further to no where, except the current Trolleys will not work on the new tracks so it continues to be a bust. Don't bother. Even cash strapped U of A students will... More

My son loves trains and so wherever we go, we try to see everything that has to do with trains. The Old Pueblo Trolley [----------------------------------------] was a big hit with him. The all-volunteer staff that restores and runs these historic trolleys are enthusiastic about their topic and willing to answer all kinds of questions. Your child can ring the trolley... More
