Phil lives in South End, and he works in Ballantyne. He does not have a car and relies on CATS to get everywhere he needs to go. He finds riding CATS to be a big money saver and very easy to use.
It’s a short walk from his apartment to the New Bern light rail station where he catches the LYNX Blue Line.
Phil takes the light rail to the Sharon Road West station and then takes a short walk to the bus stop across the street.
In just a few minutes Phil arrives in Ballantyne, where his office is just a short walk from the bus stop.
You can purchase tickets with debit or credit cards at any LYNX station. Weekly or monthly passes, which provide unlimited rides on both light rail and local bus routes, can be purchased at a number of convenient places around Charlotte.

The CATS mobile app provides real-time information on all bus and rail services. Times are derived from GPS devices located on CATS and LYNX vehicles. You can also send complaints, compliments, service requests and get riders alerts.Get the app
