LYNX Light-Rail Service
A Sleek New Alternative to Driving to the Show
With the opening of Charlotte’s first light rail line, Center guests have a new option for traveling to shows. The LYNX Blue Line offers fast, quiet, convenient light-rail service to 15 stations between uptown Charlotte and I-485 at South Blvd. Free park and ride lots are available at eight of the stations.
Center guests can disembark at the Charlotte Transporation Center/Arena Station on E. Trade Street, only a block from Founders Hall and the Belk Theater and Booth Playhouse. Guests attending shows at Spirit Square’s McGlohon Theater or Duke Energy Theater will enjoy similar easy access from the Seventh Street Station.
Adult fare is $1.50 per ticket (each way). Youth and senior fares are only 75 cents.
Trains will operate seven days a week from 5 a.m. to 1 a.m., and service is available every 7.5 minutes during weekday rush hour and every 15 minutes during non-peak hours. During weekday evenings the Blue Line will operate every 30 minutes. Weekend service will operate every 20 minutes during the day and every 30 minutes during late night hours.
