​​​​​​​​​​​​​​Current Projects

As CATS continues to expand transit options in the area, Art-in-Transit works to enhance the future rider's experience by integrating public art into each capital improvement project.  Each requires a process that includes selecting artists, proposal development in conjunction with the Art-in-Transit Advisory Committee, community outreach, fabrication and installation. Throughout these phases, staff works closely with the artists and project team to ensure the art is of high quality and brings interest to an otherwise standard facility.​

LYNX Blue Line Extension (BLE)


 The BLE is a 9 mile extension of the current LYNX Blue Line.  It will extend north of Center City Charlotte, through NoDa, up through the center of N. Tryon Street and ultimately will terminate on the campus of UNC Charlotte.

The BLE is currently under construction with a projected opening date of March 2018.
