Light Rail Connects Us: First Train Arrives on Campus

Light Rail Connects Us: First Train Arrives on Campus
Date Published:

Father’s Day, June 18, marked a milestone for the CATS Blue Line Extension. For the first time, a LYNX train arrived at the UNC Charlotte Main Station, as part of ongoing testing of the system. CATS officials and contractors continue preparations for full operation of the extension, which eventually will bring trains onto campus roughly every seven minutes when functioning at capacity.

During the testing, individuals should exercise caution and observe all signals and signs in the train areas, including when gates are lowered to prevent travel across rail lines. 

Remember the train is not open for passenger service. Stay off the station platform and away from any parked trains.

Additional information on campus construction projects, lane and road closures and schedules can be found here.
