CATS Hosts Public Meetings for Red Line Commuter Rail

The Charlotte Area Transit System (CATS) will host virtual and in-person meetings in April for the Red Line Commuter Rail project. This proposed project would bring rapid-transit rail connections from northern Mecklenburg County and southern Iredell County to Uptown Charlotte via 10 stations in five municipalities.

This project will provide reliable transportation through the establishment of a rapid-transit corridor, supporting traffic reduction along I-77 while driving economic development through the creation of transit-oriented hubs and their surrounding communities from Charlotte to Mooresville. It will also create connections to the Charlotte Gateway Station with its additional transit options and the surrounding entertainment district on one end, while providing the opportunity for future expansion into Iredell County to serve key destinations. 

At the meetings, attendees will have the opportunity to learn about the project, speak with members of the project team and provide feedback. You can drop in any time for your convenience.
