First Night Festivities / New Year's Eve
On New Year’s Eve, December 31, 2011, the Charlotte Area Transit System will operate extra LYNX Blue Line service in support of First Night activities. Buses and trains will operate according to their Saturday service on that day, with the last departures from the Charlotte Transportation Center at 1:30 a.m. for select bus routes only, and for the LYNX Blue Line.
Buses will run the regular Saturday schedule. Customers wishing to board or alight routes normally
operating on Saturdays at late-night should do so at the Charlotte Transportation Center on the
4th Street side prior to 1:30 a.m. Most uptown bus stops will be inaccessible due to detours around
First Night Festival activities.
LYNX Light Rail:
Customers riding the LYNX light rail should board at one of the three uptown stations prior to 1:30 a.m.
