LYNX Blue Line Extension Northeast Corridor
The Blue Line Extension extends from Ninth Street in Center City through the North Davidson (NoDa) and University areas to UNC Charlotte. The service will operate generally within the existing railroad right of way from Center City to NoDa and then remain within the North Tryon Street (US 29) right of way from Old Concord Road north, terminating on the UNC Charlotte campus.
Trains will operate seven days a week from 5:00 a.m. until 1:00 a.m. and the fare will equal the cost of local bus fare. Trains will arrive at stations every 10 minutes during rush hour and every 15 minutes during non-peak hours. The line is scheduled to begin operations in 2017.
