​The City of Charlotte and the North Carolina Department of Transportation are advancing the planning, design, and construction of the Charlotte Gateway Station (CGS) Project.  A focal point of the CGS Project will be the design and construction of a multi-modal facility that includes transportation and transit connections, such as intercity passenger rail service (Amtrak), CityLYNX Gold Line streetcar, intercity and local bus service, future regional rail connections, ride-share access, bicycle and pedestrian linkages.   

In order to define the vision for the station and the surrounding area, the project team has begun a study to develop a station area plan.

The public is invited to participate in open houses on Monday, August 1 and Wednesday August 3, to gather initial public input on land use, development opportunities, transportation connections, and desired amenities. Information presented at each session will not be the same. 

What: Charlotte Gateway Station (CGS) Project Workshop

When: Monday, August 1; 5 – 6:30 p.m. (Public can give input on vision for the station area.)

Wednesday, August 3; 12:30 – 1:30 p.m. (Public can learn about station area concepts that are being explored as a result of early stakeholder and public input. A formal presentation is planned for 12:45 p.m. Attendees will have the opportunity to give their feedback.) ​
