On Saturday, December 13, construction work near the LYNX Blue Line in Uptown will result in a line cut for LYNX service. During this time, the LYNX Blue Line will only operate between the I-485/S.Blvd. Station and the Carson Station. All LYNX Blue Line stations in Uptown will be closed except for the CTC/Arena Station.
Service to the CTC/Arena from the Carson Station, will be accessible via CATS bus service. When the bus approaches, the headway sign will say “LYNX Connector.” The LYNX Connector will have direct service between the Charlotte Transportation Center and the Carson Station. Other stations in Uptown will not be served by the LYNX Connector. Customers in Uptown can access the LYNX Connector at Bay V of the Charlotte Transportation Center. Bay V is located on Brevard Street.
Regular local fare will be required and, as always, serves as a transfer. Tickets can be purchased at the open LYNX stations from the ticket vending machines. If you are paying for your ride on the bus, you will need cash and have exact change. The bus driver cannot make change and the fareboxes do not accept credit cards.
The LYNX Blue Line is expected to return to its regular schedule on Sunday, December 14.
A prior press release and riders alert shared a different location of the LYNX Connector at the Charlotte Transportation Center. The location has since been changed to Bay V on Brevard Street, in anticipation of the Charlotte Hornets game scheduled the evening of Saturday, December 13, at the Arena.
