Charlotte is one step closer to a new transportation center

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (WBTV) – The city is a step closer to creating a new transportation center.

The Charlotte City Council heard an update from the Charlotte Area Transit System Monday night.

CATS said the likely expensive and lengthy project would replace the current transportation center in Uptown and include a new practice facility for the Hornets, along with retail, offices and other additions meant to build up the city.

Design decisions have not been made as to whether the new center will be street-level, above ground, or underground.
