A transit study for the Southeast corridor along Independence Boulevard is one of the topics to be discussed at a public workshop on Tuesday.

“Charlotte Moves – A Transportation and Planning Workshop,” will bring together Charlotte Department of Transportation, Charlotte Area Transit System and the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Planning Department.

Learn about proposals for serving what CDOT describes as one of the nation’s fastest-growing cities. Those services will include transit and amenities for biking and walking.

Get updates on CATS’ countywide transit service plan and CDOT’s transportation action plan. Planning staff will talk about how Charlotte might look in the future.

CATS’ Southeast Corridor study is scheduled to be completed in June. It will assess transportation needs along Independence Boulevard, among other things. Options discussed so far include light rail service on a yet-to-be-designated Lynx Silver Line.

During the meeting, Trips for Kids will teach bicycle safety and host a bicycle rodeo for children.
