Charlotte Gateway Station

​​​​​​Charlotte Gateway Station

A critical element of Charlotte's 2030 Transit Corridor System Plan is the Charlotte Gateway Station​. This future multi-modal station will consolidate public transit and intercity transportation modes at Trade and Graham Streets in Uptown Charlotte. 

This signature multimodal station will anchor the larger Charlotte Gateway District development. 

The Gateway project is being implemented through a partnership between the City of Charlotte, North Carolina Department of Transportation, regional stakeholders as well as a future private partner. 

The Charlotte Gateway Station will bring together transportation services such as:

  • Inter-city Amtrak service (via the Piedmont, the Carolinian and the Crescent) as well as the proposed Southeast Corridor (SEC) extending from Washington D.C .through Raleigh, Charlotte, and Atlanta, Georgia.​
  • CATS local and express bus services
  • CityLYNX Gold Line streetcar service
  • InterCity bus services
  • Taxi and ridesharing services
  • Improved bicycle and pedestrian access

A station with benefits:

  • Improved passenger travel experience through transit connections, savings in travel time, linkage to nearby attractions, destinations and modern amenities
  • Improved flow of freight and passenger service resulting in greater mobility of both goods and people.
