The Lynx Blue Line extension from uptown to UNC Charlotte opens in just a month. CATS has been running empty trains on the new light rail tracks since January. On Tuesday, Feb. 20, 2017, a few citizens were the first to try it out, and they’re already imagining the possibilities. I rode along and talked with some of them about the service. Listen to my story, see photos and more at WFAE.org.
