​CATS is conducting a study to identify future service opportunities and transit projects for bus rapid transit (BRT) in Charlotte's North Corridor. The corridor includes the Towns of Cornelius, Huntersville, Davidson in Mecklenburg County and Mooresville in Iredell County.

Throughout 2021, CATS and its consultant team will utilize existing data to determine the following:

  1. Enhancements to current MetroRAPID BRT service  
  2. Identify capital projects that complement the service


After completion of the study, potential enhancements may include:

  • Implementation of all-day service (including nights and weekends)
  • New CATS park and ride locations
  • New I-77 Express Lane Direct Connects
  • Integrated BRT stations into mixed use developments 

CATS held a Virtual Community Meeting on Tuesday, March 23 to kick-off the study.

In early 2022, these recommendations will be presented to the Metropolitan Transit Commission (MTC). In late 2022, CATS will begin the second phase of the study to refine and advance the recommended concepts.
