Gateway Station Sketch with Guy Walking Across the StreetAs our population continues to grow, it becomes even more critical to build a seamless, integrated transportation system.  The success of such a transportation network will be largely dependent on having a comprehensive multimodal station that facilitates easy movement among buses, cars, intercity trains and high-speed trains.  This comprehensive multimodal station is Charlotte Gateway Station.

Also serving as the southern terminus for the North Corridor Commuter Rail, Charlotte Gateway Station is envisioned as an architecturally distinctive station located at the growing core of activity between the Third and Fourth Wards at West Trade and Graham Streets.  Strategically positioned within a few blocks of most major employment centers in Uptown Charlotte, it will serve as a local and regional hub to connect multiple transportation alternatives including the commuter rail trains, Center City streetcar, local and express bus service, and inter-city transportation including Amtrak trains and Greyhound buses.  This new landmark public transportation hub will make it a portal to revitalized Third Ward, Gateway Village, and Johnson & Wales University.

NC Department of Transportation began acquiring property for the multimodal station development in 1998. Property acquisition totaling 27 acres was completed in February 2004 and allows for the physical station as well as supportive land uses (i.e. retail and offices).
