NOW OPEN (through November 3)- Public engagement is continuing as CATS seeks valuable input for further refinement of the LYNX Silver Line light rail alignment and station locations.
Please click the links below to find updates on the ongoing planning and design efforts for the proposed LYNX Silver Line light rail.
Additional local funds will be needed in the future for later design stages, construction, and operations outside of Mecklenburg County. Once the local funding source is secured, CATS will submit the LYNX Silver Line for a federal grant through the Federal Transit Administration’s (FTA) New Starts program. New Starts is a highly competitive program in which FTA will evaluate local financial commitment and project justification.
