Charlotte Trolley

The Charlotte Trolley started out as a very short line in the South End using true vintage equipment -- a single car -- but lacking overhead power.  From this beginning in 1996 the line has evolved to an approximately two-mile route between  Atherton Mill in the South End and 9th St. in Uptown Charlotte.  Normal operation sees the use of any of three replica cars manufactured by Gomaco Trolley Co., including #92, shown here at the northern terminal.

The Trolley is operated by CATS, Charlotte Area Transit System, which also runs the LYNX Blue Line.  The two systems stop at seven stations in common.  In addition the heritage line has four stops unique to its route: this one at 9th; midway along its route, at Morehead; and two stations at its southern end, Tremont, and the southern terminal.
