CATS seeks neighbor input on future Silver Line Rail Trail


CHARLOTTE, N.C. (QUEEN CITY NEWS) — The Charlotte Area Transit System (CATS) is continuing to move forward with plans to create a Silver Line Light Rail that would extend all the way from Belmont to Indian Trail.

In addition to the train itself, the multi-billion-dollar plan includes a rail trail, which would establish a path for people to walk, run, or bike alongside the tracks.

On Monday, transit leaders are asking for neighbors who live in the Village Lake and Woodberry Forest neighborhoods off Monroe Road to weigh in on potential alignments for their portion of the rail trail.

Thanks to Sydney Heiberger | Queen City News for coming out to Mason Wallace Park to speak with us about the importance of connectivity for the area. Neighbors need safe, equitable multi-modal transit options.

We hope many are able to make it to the Open House meeting tonight to share their perspectives.
