The majority of the posts on this site have been critical of the project pointing out issues that make it less safe for cyclists.
It’s clear the tracks are a hazard and the for the routes to truly be safe parking needs to be removed along narrow spaces like Fourth Avenue.
More can and needs to be done to make sure everyone can get where they want to easily and safely.
That said it only takes spending a Saturday night in downtown Tucson to see that the impact the streetcar has had on the region.
Downtown Tucson is once again a destination people want to go to and the streetcar has played a large role in that.
Bicycle advocates still have work to do to keep improving safety along the corridor, but I’m liking the new and improved Tucson.
Plus my kids sure are excited to ride it.
The Arizona Daily Star has a good resource page about how to ride. Also check out the interactive map one of my students put together.
