Concord Kannapolis Area Transit Public Hearing for New Service - Route 80x


Concord Kannapolis Area Transit Public Hearing for New Service

Wednesday and Thursday, December 20 and 21, 2017

Route: 80X Concord Express

With the expected opening of the LYNX Blue Line Extension, CATS plans to replace the current Route 80X Concord Express to Uptown Charlotte with a new route operated by Concord Kannapolis Area Transit (CK Rider) partially funded in partnership with CATS.  CK Rider plans to operate new all-day service between their Transit Center in Concord and the new JW Clay / UNCC LYNX Station.  The planned name for this new CK Rider service is the CCX – Concord Charlotte Express.

CK Rider will be hosting two public hearing sessions at their Transit Center at 3600 Ridge Road in Concord.  Staff from both CK Rider and CATS will be at each public hearing to provide information and address questions and concerns about the planned new service.

Current CATS Route 80X customers are strongly encouraged to attend either of the following scheduled meeting times:

Wednesday, December 20, 2017, 5:00 pm to 7:00 pm

Thursday, December 21, 2017, 2:30pm to 4:30pm

Both meeting times are set up for the public to drop-in during any portion of the two-hour window as an open house.  Public input is requested on the new Concord Charlotte Express route, the elimination of the CATS 80X route, the proposed regional service fare, and the addition of new pass options.
