“CATS – Key Activities in Charlotte Transit Development”
The Blue Line Extension (BLE) is the next phase of the successful LYNX Blue Line light rail service. The 9.3-mile alignment extends from Ninth Street in Center City through the North Davidson (NoDa) and University areas, terminating on the UNC Charlotte campus. Join us as John Muth discusses the BLE and the overall CATS Corridor System Plan.
John Muth, Deputy Director for Development and Chief Development Officer, Charlotte Area Transit System (CATS)
Under John M. Muth, Deputy Director for Development and Chief Development Officer, the Development Division of CATS has the lead in planning for and creating Charlotte's rapid transit system. Now in the early stages of a 25-year, $3 billon development effort, the rapid transit system will include bus rapid transit guideways, light rail transit, streetcar lines, and commuter rail services, and will be an integral part of an overall transit system that will serve over four times as many transit riders as the system did in 2001. The Division also oversees the planning and implementation of Neighborhood Transit Centers, Park 'N Ride lots, and the bus stop facilities program (signs, benches, shelters, and other passenger amenities). The Division interacts with local, State and Federal agencies; participates in regional long range transportation planning; conducts public involvement and community relation activities for rapid transit planning; represent transit interests in City, County, and Town policy development; directs the CATS Art-In-Transit program and manages CATS wide Quality initiatives.
