CHARLOTTE – Charlotte Area Transit System continues seeking public input on transit goals, constraints and opportunities in the south Charlotte corridor.
Round 1 of public outreach, which culminated May 3, established a baseline of the desires for rapid transit in the community. This was done through public meetings, stakeholder outreach and an online survey.
CATS will engage residents in Pineville and Ballantyne through two more phases of public outreach.
Round 2: Ideas
Public meetings will present ideas from the first round while further refining the community’s desires for the corridor:
May 8, 6 to 7:30 p.m. (presentation at 6:15 p.m.) at the Belle Johnston Community Center, 1000 Johnston Drive, Pineville.
May 11, 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. (drop-in) at the Ballantyne Hotel, 10000 Ballantyne Commons Pkwy., Charlotte.
Round 3: Recommendations
Basic rapid transit recommendations will be presented while gauging public insight.
June 12, 6 to 7:30 p.m. (presentation at 6:15 p.m.) at the Belle Johnston Community Center, 1000 Johnston Drive, Pineville.
June 15, 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. (drop-in), at Ballantyne Hotel (DROP-IN), 10000 Ballantyne Commons Pkwy., Charlotte
