Light Rail Directions

Three light rail stations service UNC Charlotte: on main campus, the J.W. Clay/UNC Charlotte Station and the UNC Charlotte Main Station (across from Wallis and Miltimore Halls along Cameron Boulevard). The 9th Street Station serves UNC Charlotte Center City, which is just a couple minutes walk from the station.

For football games and events in the Charlotte Research Institute, exit the train at the J.W. Clay/UNC Charlotte Station. Signage will direct you to campus, where you can catch a Niner Transit bus if needed.

For basketball games and other events in the core of main campus, like International Festival or theater performances, use the UNC Charlotte Main Station. You can catch a Niner Transit bus at this station that will deliver you to stops across campus.

You can expect buses to arrive approximately every eight minutes at Niner Transit stops.

As you plan for events on main and Center City campuses, please use the following verbiage to encourage visitors to use light rail. Click on the directions below to download. For additional assistance, contact
