Bus Rapid Transit Route along Wilkinson Boulevard Recommended for
(September 21, 2002)
On September 18 Charlotte Area Transit System (CATS) staff
recommended a route following Wilkinson Boulevard through the West
Corridor. Planners had considered an alternative alignment that generally followed West Boulevard and Byrum Drive on the
south side of the airport, but the Wilkinson Boulevard was chosen
instead. Plans call for a bus rapid transit route along Wilkinson
Boulevard to a point north of the airport. The announced
recommendations also include enhanced bus services along West
Boulevard and Tyvola Road to Yorkmont Road serving employment
centers on the south side of the airport.
