CATS announced, Monday, Oct. 15, the light rail will operate on modified service for at least one more week while repairs are made to the overhead catenary system, which was damaged during Hurricane Michael last Thursday when a tree fell on it near 12th street.

Trains will run between UNC Charlotte and Sugar Creek station and from Scaleybark Station to I-485. There is a bus bridge in place between Sugar Creek and Scaleybark, providing dedicated bus service for rail riders. Individuals should allow extra travel time should their route require the use of the bus bridge. (Note, this is a change from previous reports).

Also, the CityLYNX Gold Line streetcar service is suspended while repairs are being made, but Gold Line stations are accessible via CATS local bus service on routes 9-Central Avenue, 15-Randolph Road and 27-Monroe Road.

The latest information is available from CATS on ridetransit.org or @CATSRideTransit on Twitter. Riders also can call 704-336-RIDE (7433) with questions.
