Charlotte Light Rail Extension

Charlotte Light Rail Extension

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. With a completion date of 2017, hopes are high that this extension will mirror the success of the original Blue Line.
