CATS wants a rail line to airport. A $1.5 million study will determine the best way

Quote:
The Charlotte Area Transit System is continuing its ambitious plans for more rail lines, and expects to spend up to $1.5 million on a consultant to determine how and where it should build a line to serve west Charlotte and the airport.

Ten years ago, in the 2030 transit plan, CATS had a general concept of building a streetcar along Wilkinson Boulevard toward Charlotte Douglas International Airport.

But CATS chief executive John Lewis wants a more detailed study to determine whether that’s the best option. He also wants to know how much it would cost.
