CABA MEETS WITH CATS’ CEO

Martin, Dan and Keith Parker, CEO of Charlotte Area Transit System (CATS)

Last month Dan Faris, Board Chairman of CABA and Martin Zimmerman met with Keith Parker who heads the Charlotte Area Transit System (CATS) to discuss several short and long term priorities for bicycling integration with the transit system, especially with the LYNX light rail lines. Among the issues discussed were the possibility of an off-road bike route parallel to the Northeast Corridor, building a bike station at the proposed Uptown Gateway intermodal complex, and informational decals on LYNX cars that would explain how and where to mount bikes. Keith pledged his support for continued integration between bikes, busses, and light rail.
