Blue Line Extension

​​​​​​LYNX Blue Line Extension

The Blue Line Extension is an extension of the successful LYNX Blue Line light rail service that is currently under construction.  The 9.3-mile alignment extends from 7th Street Station in Center City through the NoDA (North Davidson) and University areas, terminating on the UNC Charlotte campus. By including the LYNX Blue Line Extension in a comprehensive transportation system that includes roads, buses, streetcar and light rail we can offer more transportation choices and alternatives to traffic congestion.



Check out CATS’ BLE video of the future LYNX Blue Line Extension (BLE) light rail project. Follow the alignment and hear about the connections light rail brings to Charlotte. The BLE is expected to open for service in 2018.
