What's the schedule?

The LYNX Connector bus service will operate the same modified weekend schedule as the LYNX Blue Line; however, customers should anticipate delays and adjust their travel times.


How do I pay?

Regular local fare is required, and transfers are provided upon request once fare is paid.  Tickets can be purchased at LYNX stations from the ticket vending machines.  If you are paying with cash on the bus, you’ll need to have exact change.  The bus driver cannot make change and the fareboxes do not accept credit cards.  You may also choose to pay via the  CATS PASS mobile app.  Remember to activate your ticket and show it to the bus operator as you board. 


 Customers should also note the pickup and drop off location for Rt. 20 will be moved inside the transit center to Bay K.

For additional information please call CATS Customer Service at 704-336-7433.
