Charlotte Area Transit System Park and Ride
The Charlotte Area Transit System (CATS) chose CALYX to provide contract administration and construction inspection for these two projects that provide a vital link for commuters to avoid significant traffic congestion in the Charlotte Metro Area. CALYX also provided design services for the Northcross facility, which features more than 250 parking spaces, customer bus shelters and a bus driver rest area facility. Rain gardens combined with catch basins collect and then distribute water to plant beds located between parking spaces. A fourth of the $2 million construction were devoted to landscape and planting features. The Matthews Park and Ride facility offers a 300 vehicle parking area, bus stop shelters and bus driver rest area facilities.
