The CATS LYNX Blue Line extension provides light rail service to the University’s main campus at two convenient locations: the J.W. Clay/UNC Charlotte Station and the UNC Charlotte Main Station. We encourage you to consider this option when planning your trip to the University. You may purchase tickets at any light rail station along the Blue Line or by downloading the CATS Pass Mobile App. More information on train schedules and fares is available on the CATS website. For this event, the most convenient light rail station is UNC Charlotte Main Station.

When you arrive: Conveniently, if you are checking in at the residence halls, they are located directly across the street from the light rail station. If you are checking in at the student union, a Niner Transit bus (Green and Gold Lines) will pick you up at the light rail station. Please note: The Green Line picks up at the station platform, and the Gold Line picks up across the street. You should expect buses to arrive approximately every eight minutes during peak weekday hours, depending on campus traffic. You can track bus arrival in real time on the University’s Parking and Transportation Services website or by downloading the UNCCNextRide app (Apple) or (Android). Please pull the yellow “Stop Request” cord inside the bus as you approach your stop to indicate to the driver you need to exit at the Popp Martin Student Union stop for this event. More information on the light rail is available at lightrail.uncc.edu.
