During the LYNX System Update and the Regional Transit Engagement Series there was significant interest in rapid transit to Pineville and Ballantyne. In February 2019, the Metropolitan Transit Commission directed staff to continue the LYNX System Update study to evaluate rapid transit options, including a light rail extension, to the Town of Pineville and the community of Ballantyne.
CATS is taking a fresh look at transit opportunities in the Pineville and Ballantyne area and is seeking public input on transit goals, constraints, and opportunities in the South Charlotte corridor.
