LYNX Blue Line Construction – Line Cut

Effective Dec. 19-20

Attn:  LYNX Customers

No train service from New Bern to 7th Street

During the weekend of December 19-20, construction work near the LYNX Blue Line will result in a line cut for LYNX service.  Train service will only be operating from I-485/S. Blvd. Station to the Scaleybark Station. 

Service to stations beyond Scaleybark, from New Bern to the CTC/Arena Stations, will be accessible via CATS bus service.  Each affected station will have signage directing you to the nearest bus stop. Look for the bus stop that says "LYNX Connector".  When the bus approaches, the headway sign will say "LYNX Connector".  The LYNX Connector bus service will operate the same schedule as the LYNX Blue Line, which is every 20 minutes; however, customers should anticipate delays and adjust their travel times.

Customers in Uptown can access the LYNX Connector at Bay V located on the Brevard Street side of the Charlotte Transportation Center. Other stations in Uptown, including 7th Street Station, will not be served by the LYNX Connector.

Regular local fare will be required and, as always, serves as a transfer. Tickets can be purchased at the open LYNX stations from the ticket vending machines. If you are paying for your ride on the bus, you will need cash and have exact change. The bus driver cannot make change and the fareboxes do not accept credit cards.
