Transit Planning
CATS is hosting two public meetings tonight. Join us for a LYNX Blue Line Extension light rail project update or proposed bus route adjustments due to light rail construction.
LYNX Blue Line Extension
The Charlotte Area Transit System (CATS) and the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Planning Department is hosting a public workshop tonight to collect input on the three University City transit station area plans. City staff will also share information about the supporting infrastructure program for the BLE. Input collected at this meeting could result in new recommendations for the future land use of properties within the transit station plan areas and will update the University City Area Plan. These plans will also update the University City Area Plan adopted in 2007.

Route 39 Eastway
The Charlotte Area Transit System (CATS) is holding an open house public meeting tonight to solicit input regarding proposed route adjustments to Route 39.

Proposed routing would discontinue service north of The Plaza, including North Tryon Street Tom Hunter Road, Canterwood Drive, Elgywood Lane, and Arrowhead Drive.  Service to these areas would continue to be maintained by Routes 11 North Tryon and 211 Hidden Valley.

From Eastway Drive, proposed routing would turn left on The Plaza, left on Sugar Creek Road, and right on Eastway Drive and resume regular routing.  This proposal is under consideration because a construction project will close Eastway Drive between The Plaza and North Tryon Street, starting March 2014. This construction closure will prevent all traffic

If adopted, the service change would be implemented on March 3, 2014. The public outreach meetings are open house format designed for you to drop in anytime during the meeting hours. CATS wants your feedback and encourages transit customers and members of the community to attend the meeting to ask questions and learn more about the proposed changes to these routes.
