Light Rail Project Timeline

Construction will continue through the spring of 2017. A period of rail testing will begin in early summer 2017; trains will be running but not open to passenger service. Passenger service is expected to begin in August, 2017.

Light rail service to Mecklenburg County began in November 2007, when the Charlotte Area Transit System (CATS) opened the LYNX Blue Line from I-485 at South Boulevard (Pineville city limits) to Seventh Street in Uptown Charlotte.
