You’re here, and that’s fantastic!
Now for the details on getting around. Of course, there are rental cars available, but there is also the Sun Link Streetcar in the city’s core, taxis, app-based ridesharing, and Tucson’s TuGo Bike Share for getting up close and personal with the Old Pueblo.
Renting a Car
All of the major car rental agencies have fleets at Tucson International Airport. You’ll also find a number of rental car agencies throughout the city if looking for a shorter-term or specialty rental during your stay.
Tucson’s Sun Link Streetcar
Tucson’s Sun Link Streetcar will link the University of Arizona to the Mercado neighborhood by way of downtown Tucson and the popular 4th Avenue dining, shopping, and entertainment district, following the main artery of Tucson’s Urban Core.
Taxis, Limos, Shuttles & Charters
In many parts of Tucson, including downtown and the University area, you can walk to great dining, shopping, and entertainment, but you may want wheels while you’re here. If you prefer not to rent a car, taxi and limo services can get you where you need to go. Shuttle services and charter services also offer convenient transportation to the airport and other locations.

Tucson’s Sun Tran bus service offers more than 40 routes throughout the city and its outskirts, including 13 express routes. Learn more online or call (520) 792-9222 for route maps and schedules.
