LYNX Silver Line Transit-Oriented Development Study Results
Refined Locally Preferred Alternative Alignment
The LYNX Silver line TOD study team worked closely with the LYNX Silver Line design team, to refine the Locally Preferred Alternative (LPA) through a year-long collaborative and iterative process that considers the TOD potential and land use impacts of stations and alignments. This collaborative process led to a refined LPA alignment adopted by the CATS Metropolitan Transportation Commission in April 2021.
LYNX Silver Line Transit-Oriented Development Study Final Report
This report outlines specific transit-oriented development (TOD) recommendations for each of the 31 proposed LYNX Silver Line stations.
The content and recommendations are tailored to the unique context and public input received for each specific station area.

CATS Station Area Typologies Manual
The Station Typology Manual supports the planning, design, and development of transit station sites and help prepare for future transit-oriented development (TOD) within and near transit stations.
This manual is designed to complement the station site selection process and inform station area design considerations.

Creating a Vision for Silver Line
The study team worked with multiple partners, stakeholders, and the community to develop a new vision for seven demonstration station areas along the corridor. These demonstration station areas illustrate TOD principles and best practices that could guide planning and implementation for other stations with similar conditions.
Successful implementation of TOD occurs through a combination of recognizing and leveraging market development forces, proactive municipal policies, and targeted public infrastructure that support compact, walkable/bikeable, equitable development outcomes. Recommendations on potential infrastructure improvements and TOD areas are outlined HERE.
The TOD areas reflect input from community and stakeholders. These TOD areas and the recommendations from the TOD Study support the City's recently adopted The Charlotte 2040 Policy Map.
