Lynx Blue Line service interruptions planned for Saturday and Sunday

The Lynx Blue Line will operate only between the Interstate 485/South Boulevard and Scaleybark stations on Saturday and Sunday because of construction related to the Lynx Blue Line Station Capacity Project.

No light rail will operate from the New Bern station to the Charlotte Transportation Center/Arena stations, the Charlotte Area Transit System announced.

Service from the New Bern station to the CTC/Arena stations will be accessible only via CATS buses.

Each affected station will have signs directing passengers to the nearest bus stop. Look for the bus stop that says “LYNX Connector.”

Also, Lynx Connector buses will detour for the Thunder Road Marathon from 8 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. Saturday. Customers needing Lynx Connector service during those hours must use other boarding locations listed at ridetransit.org. Or call 704-336-RIDE (7433) for the locations.

Customers uptown can access the LYNX Connector at Bay V on the Brevard Street side of the CTC. Other stations in uptown, including the Seventh Street station, will not be served by the connector.

The LYNX Blue Line is expected to return to its regular schedule Monday morning.
