Transit Planning
CATS Hosts Public Meeting to Discuss Proposed Route Changes
Immediate Release - March 28, 2013 
The Charlotte Area Transit System (CATS) is hosting an open house public meeting to discuss proposed changes to Routes 79X – Concord Mills Express and 80X – Concord Express. Route 79X is under consideration for discontinuation due to low ridership. The proposal for Route 80X is to re-route inbound trips to Brookshire Boulevard to avoid congestion at the I-85/I-77 interchange. The schedule for Route 80X would also be modified to improve reliability.

“CATS goal is to provide service that is efficient while meeting the needs of our riders throughout the region,” says Pamela White, Manager of Service Development. If the proposals are adopted, the service changes will go into effect in June 2013. 

CATS encourages passengers and community members to attend the public meeting. Staff will be available to share information, answer questions and gather public feedback. The open house is designed so participants can drop in anytime during the meeting hours.

Public Meeting:
Tuesday, April 2, 2013
Charlotte-Mecklenburg Main Library
Francis Auditorium
310 North Tryon Street
Charlotte, NC 28202
Drop in anytime between 11:30 a.m. – 1:00 p.m.
