LYNX Blue Line Weekend Construction Line Cut Work

Effective Feb. 23-24, 2013

During the weekend of Feb. 23-24, construction work near the LYNX Blue Line New Bern Station will begin. During this time, the LYNX Blue Line will only operate from the I-485/S. Blvd. Station to the Scaleybark Station.

Service to stations beyond Scaleybark, from New Bern to CTC/Arena stations, will be accessible via CATS bus service. The 7th Street station will not be served. Each affected station will have signage directing you to the
nearest bus stop. Look for the bus stop that says “LYNX Connector.” When the bus approaches, the headway sign will also say “LYNX Connector.” The LYNX Connector is a limited bus route designed to operate limited stops between the temporarily closed LYNX Blue Line Station stops and uptown Charlotte.

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 Monday morning.

Construction work is weather dependent; call 704-336-RIDE (7433) or check CATS webpage at www.ridetransit.org for updates.
