    Effective June 3rd the short 2 mile free service in Charlotte, NC will be suspended for 18 months. The suspension is so level boarding platforms can be installed for the Siemans trains slated for the line. So they can change the voltage of the catenary and so they can extend to phase II.

    Currently the CityLynx has used replica streetcars built to look like the original Charlotte streetcars in the 30s. When it returns it will be using a variant of S70 trains. The fare is free so ride it while you can. Bus substitution service will be offered between all stops during the construction period.

    This service disruption does not effect the Blue Line.
