Lynx Blue Line stations to close for the day in uptown Charlotte Saturday

All Lynx Blue Line stations in uptown will be closed on Saturday except for the CTC/Arena Station, the Charlotte Area Transit System announced.

The stations will be closed for construction work. They will reopen Sunday.

On Saturday, the Blue Line will operate only between the Interstate 485/South Boulevard Station and the Carson Station.

Service to the CTC/Arena Station from the Carson Station will be accessible by CATS bus service.

When the bus approaches, the headway sign will say “Lynx Connector.”

The Lynx Connector will have direct service between the Charlotte Transportation Center and the Carson Station. Customers in uptown can access the connector at Bay X at the transportation center. Bay X is on East Fourth Street below the Lynx Blue Line bridge.

Regular local fare will be required and, as always, serves as a transfer. Tickets can be purchased from vending machines at the open Lynx stations.

If you are paying for your ride on the bus, you will need exact change. The bus driver can’t make change, and the fare boxes don’t accept credit cards.

Construction work depends on the weather. For updates, call 704-336-RIDE (7433) or visit www.ridetransit.org. ​
