CATS to End First Mile Last Mile Pilot Program

March 1, 2020

All Routes

Charlotte Area Transit System will culminate its First Mile Last Mile Pilot Program in partnership with Lyft on March 1, 2021.

CATS will provide a $4.00 contribution toward the Lyft trip fee to/from the Parkwood Station, University City Blvd. Station and JW Clay/UNC Charlotte Station for trips taken within a geo-fenced area surrounding both stations through February 28, 2021. CATS Pass Monthly Pass Holders can still use the 40 trips embedded in their Lyft app through the end of February, but will not have access to those trips on and after March 1, 2021.

CATS and Lyft began their partnership in March 2018 to connect riders to the first and last miles of their commute to provide greater connectivity to jobs and education by supplementing affordable transportation on the first and last mile of a person's commute in areas where transit service may be too far away.
