Routes 98 and 99 North Mecklenburg Village Riders
The Charlotte Area Transit System (CATS) is hosting a public meeting on Thursday, December 5, 2013, 11:30 am – 1:30 pm to receive feedback regarding proposed service changes to Routes 98 and 99.
Proposed routing for Route 98 McCoy Road includes replacing current service to North County Regional Library with service to Central Piedmont Community College (CPCC) Merancas Campus. The service to CPCC would operate on Statesville Road and Verhoeff Road between the Park and Ride and CPCC. Route 98 bus service between the Park and Ride and the Library along Statesville Road would be discontinued. Service in this area would be maintained with Routes 77X and 99. Service between the Park and Ride and McCoy Road via Gilead Road would remain unchanged. Route 98 would continue to provide deviated bus service within ¾ mile from the proposed bus route.
Proposed routing for Route 99 Huntersville/CPCC includes replacing current service along Verhoeff Road would be replaced with Route 98. Service to Bryton Town Center (Wal-Mart) would become part of the regular route via Alexanderana Road and Old Statesville Road. Current service on Statesville Road between Verhoeff Road and Alexanderana Road would be discontinued. Service to North Mecklenburg High School would be maintained. CPCC would be served indirectly by new bus stops on Old Statesville Road, about a quarter-mile walk from campus. The current bus stops on Verhoeff Road would be served directly by the proposed adjustments to Route 98. Route 99 would continue to provide deviated bus service within ¾ mile from the proposed bus route.
If adopted, the service change would be implemented on March 3, 2014. The public meeting is an open house format designed for you to drop in anytime during the meeting hours. CATS wants your feedback and encourages transit customers and members of the community to attend the meeting to ask questions and learn more about the proposed changes to these routes.
