Our buses to Lake Norman are really frequent. Like 15 minute headeays between 48X & 77X during peak. 30-45 minutes off peak and the last outbound leaves around 8:15pm I think. You miss the bus, you do have the option of taking Beatties Ford route to Northlake or Huntersville Walmart where the Lake Norman busses run a little later.

It all depends on how much demand there is for the route, the Lake Norman area is definitely one of the busier areas for express bus usage, which is why it runs all day. Once the toll lanes are done it's likely ridership will increase even more since CATS will have access to those lanes, whereas today the buses have to deal with traffic like the rest of us until they get to the HOV lanes inside the 485 belt.

On another note I mentioned that CATS would likely create a connector to Concord from the last Park and Ride station on the Blue Line Extension. This little tidbit of information was just posted in the latest transportation plan for Charlotte. "* Purchase of six new buses for a new line that would connect the UNCC Station on the BLE to the CK Rider in Concord Mills (possible blueprint for a future extension of the Blue Line)."

Charlotte 485, Thanks for that idea, that could work using the Park & Ride in Hunterville if we wind up in Concord.

NickA, Appreciate the CATS news tip. Glad to hear there will be more options in the future. Also, understand the advantage the HOV lanes on 485will be to the buses during rush hour, that's encouraging.

Now, just to find an affordable house near mass transit...
