​​​Charlotte, N.C. - Charlotte Area Transit System (CATS) will perform a line cut February 20-21 due to construction work for the LYNX Blue Line Capacity Expansion Project. During this time, the LYNX Blue Line will only operate between the Arrowood Station and the 7th Street Station. There will be no train service from the I-485/South Boulevard Station and the Sharon Road West Station.


Service to the I-485/South Boulevard and Sharon Road West stations will be accessible via CATS bus service.  Each affected station will have signage directing you to the nearest bus stop. Look for the bus stop that says "LYNX Connector".  When the bus approaches, the headway sign will say "LYNX Connector".  The LYNX Connector bus service will operate the same schedule as the LYNX Blue Line, which is every 20 minutes; however, customers should anticipate delays and adjust their travel times.​

Regular local fare will be required and, as always, serves as a transfer. Tickets can be purchased at open LYNX stations from the ticket vending machines. Customers paying their fare on the bus will need exact change. The bus driver cannot make change and the fareboxes do not accept credit cards.
