The following are the planned service adjustments for CATS services to be implemented on October 5, 2015
Minor time changes on the schedules will be implemented for the following bus routes:
Route 1 Mt Holly: The base route trips will be extended to Paw Creek outbound on Old Mount Holly Road and inbound on Freedom Drive and Toddville Road. Routing on West Todd Lane and East Todd Lane will be discontinued. The Callabridge Commons routing will not be changed. A later Callabridge Commons trip on weekdays from Uptown at 8:30pm will be added to the schedule. Route 19 Park Road: A Time Point at Park and Fairview will be added to the 19S and 19W. The Time Point at Park and Woodlawn will be deleted; however, the stop will remain in the current location. Route 20 Sharon Road: An 11:20pm inbound trip from Carolina Place Mall will be added to the schedule. Both the current 10:20pm and the new 11:20pm trips will convert into the Route 19 at SouthPark Mall and continue to the Charlotte Transportation Center. Route 34 Freedom Drive: The Route 34 will operate inbound and outbound on Tuckaseegee Road between Ashley Road and Mulberry Church Road. Areas of Freedom Drive and Toddville Road served by the Route 34 will be discontinued. Route 39 Eastway Drive: The Eastway Drive bridge is expected to re-open by October. To avoid on-going construction, a temporary detour will be used to turnaround at Eastway Drive and North Tryon Street. The temporary end of the line will be on Eastway Drive across from CMC North Park. This detour is scheduled until December, when Old Concord Road is expected to re-open at North Tryon Street, after which, the 39 will be extended to Orr Road. Route 41x Steele Creek Express: The 41X will serve a new Park and Ride on Walker Branch Drive @ Gander Mountain. In order to serve the Walker Branch Park and Ride, routing on Steelecroft Parkway will be discontinued. Customers on Steele Croft Parkway will be able board on Steelecroft Parkway at CMC Steele Creek. Route 56 Arrowood: All Trips on the Route 56 will be extended to the CMC Steele Creek. Rivergate will be served outbound on South Tryon Street and Steele Creek Road. Inbound service remains unchanged on South Tryon Street. General Commerce trips will be discontinued. Current 56G Customers may utilize the 56 on Tryon Street or the 55 on Westinghouse. Route 82X Fort Mill: CATS will once again serve a park and ride at Interstate 77 Exit 90, near the Carowinds Theme Park on Cabelas Drive. The new park and ride location will offer passengers on street parking along Cabelas Drive. Parking on private property at the adjacent businesses may result in your vehicle being towed. Scheduled times arriving and departing Uptown Charlotte will remain the same.
Gold Rush Red Line: Three morning and afternoon trips on the Gold Rush Red Line will be discontinued. Gold Rush service will begin inbound at Gateway at 7:34am and the last trip outbound from the Charlotte Transportation Center will be at 5:14pm. The trip frequency will not change.
