Charlotte mulls light rail expansion

Written by Keith 

An initial public consultation will begin on August 11, 2015 on proposals to expand the light rail network in Charlotte, N.C.

Charlotte Area Transit System (CATS) is seeking feedback on plans for the 12.7-mile Lynx Silver Line, which would link the city center with the suburb of Matthews, which has a population of around 27,000.

Route options for the line are being evaluated as part of the Lynx Silver Line/Southeast Corridor Transit Study, which will conclude in June 2016 with recommendations to the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Metropolitan Transit Commission.
