Transit Planning


During our current Pre-Project Development phase, CATS staff is refining the proposed alignment. This includes evaluating different alignment options to create a buildable project.  An important part of the process is community feedback - that's why we need your input!

 

CATS will be hosting upcoming virtual public meetings that include a presentation and Q&A around the proposed LYNX Silver Line. The 26-mile alignment has been broken into six focus segments to allow the project team and public to concentrate on particular areas of interest.

What's Next?

Through October 2020, CATS will continue public outreach during the Pre-Project Development Phase. This phase is necessary to be eligible for future federal funding through the Federal Transit Administration. CATS will use this input towards preliminary engineering.

In Early 2021, CATS will present the refined LPA to the public and to the MTC for approval.
