Charlotte, N.C., August 5, 2010 – Looking for a fast, convenient way to get to the Carolina Panthers games this season?  Join Sir Purr and the Charlotte Area Transit System (CATS) on Friday, August 6 from 3:30-6:00 p.m. at the LYNX Blue Line Third Street/Convention Center Station to learn how easy it is to travel to the games with just a click of a button.  

Just in time for football season, Sir Purr will be on hand to meet and greet customers and remind fans to purchase their LYNX round trip and one day passes online.  “CATS e-commerce site provides a safe and convenient option for customers to purchase tickets in advance,” said Kim Taylor, CATS Marketing Manager. “You can buy passes for just one home game or season ticket holders can buy their LYNX passes for the entire season.” 

To purchase online, customers can log on to www.ridetransit.org and select the tickets you wish to purchase, drop them into the shopping cart, and then complete their shipping and billing information.  The online site accepts VISA and MasterCard. All purchases must total at least $12 before mailing and processing fees are applied.  Passes purchased online can be picked up at the Charlotte Transportation Center at no charge or mailed to your address.  A $2.00 mailing and processing fee is applied to all orders that are mailed.  Customers should allow three to five days for delivery of passes that are mailed.  Passes purchased online are valid on the LYNX Blue Line and CATS fixed route services.
