CATS to host public meetings for October 2018 service changes

Charlotte, N.C. – CATS will host a series of upcoming public meetings to discuss proposed changes to routing that will take place in October 2018 as part of the Envision My Ride bus system redesign.  Changes are being proposed to the following routes: 1, 2, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 16, 20, 21, 25, 30, 34, 45x, 56, 60, 61x, 62x, & 235.

 

The proposed route changes are a result of citizen feedback collected through several phases of public outreach. Citizens who can't attend the meetings can tune into CATS Facebook page for a quick live presentation 30 minutes after the start of each meeting. 

 

Each meeting will be a drop-in format and will provide the opportunity for riders to learn about specific routes.
