The Charlotte Area Transit System (CATS) is hosting an open house public meeting to discuss proposed changes to the Gold Rush Center City Circular services today.
The proposal for the Red Line is to reduce the service area, providing service between Johnson C. Smith University and Central Piedmont Community College.
The shortened route is expected to improve the frequency of this route to every 12 minutes. The proposal for the Orange Line, which runs along North Tryon Street, is to discontinue this service. "CATS is proposing these changes because of reductions in federal grant funding and private contributions that have supported the Gold Rush services," says Pamela White, Manager of Service Development.
If the proposals are adopted, the service changes will go into effect in July 2013.
CATS encourages passengers and community members to attend the public meeting. Staff will be available to share information, answer questions and gather public feedback. The open house is designed so participants can drop in anytime during the meeting hours. If you are unable to attend and wish to share your comments, please email firstname.lastname@example.org by 5:00 p.m. on Wednesday, May 8, 2013.
