Yaaay, The official Opening for the Light Rail……

In November of 2007, the Charlotte Area Transit System or CATS and the City of Charlotte opened North Carolina’s first light rail line. The 9.6 mile Lynx Blue Line has exceeded expectations in both ridership and real estate development. Now construction has begun on an extension that will add another 9.3 miles and serve University City and the University of North Carolina at Charlotte. Hopes are high that this extension will mirror the success of the original Blue Line. After many unforeseen obstacles and delays, the long anticipated wait is almost over, the Light Rail will officially begin service to the University area on March 16th, 2018
