New bus service will connect Mint Hill and Matthews


The Mint Hill Times

Here are the stop for the new bus service in Mint Hill and Matthews.

Charlotte Area Transit System (CATS) announced last week it has a two year grant to operate a shuttle two days per week in the Matthews and Mint Hill area. The shuttle will operated Tuesday and Thursdays, 9 am to 11 am and 2 pm to 4:30 pm. CATS is flexible in terms of time adjustments, but must know relatively quickly to get the service up and running by June. The current stops are: Lawyer’s Glen Living Center, Mint Hill Festival Shopping Center (stop at Lawyers/Hwy.51), Blessed Assurance Adult Day Care Center, Levine Senior Center (on Northwest Parkway unless inside complex lot is better), Windsor Square Shopping Center/Sycamore Commons Shopping Center (on Windsor Square Dr.) and the Park and Ride near Sam Newell Road/Independence Pt. Parkway to allow connections to other transit bus services throughout Mecklenburg County.
The CATS Transit Planner, Ramond Robinson, 704-353-0018, has some flexibility with adding more stops, but needs to get some idea of the ridership interest in this community. The cost to ride this shuttle is $0.70 one way ($0.35 for seniors and disabled). The Mint Hill – Matthews Shuttle is scheduled to begin the week of June 6, 2011. Interested parties should call 704-353-0018 for more information.
