Listen: What’s next for Charlotte transit?

When WFAE, The Charlotte Ledger and the UNC Charlotte Urban Institute launched a joint newsletter last year to cover transit and transportation, we assumed that the main focus would be the 1-cent transit sales tax vote.

Well, that vote didn’t happen and the transit plan is in a bit of limbo, but we’ve still found plenty to write about, from Chick-fil-A’s humongous backups to the NC DOT’s yawning budget hole, the “stigma” facing bus riders to the real reason there are no plans for a train directly to the airport.

Hear from Ely Portillo (UNC Charlotte), Steve Harrison (WFAE) and Tony Mecia (Charlotte Ledger) about what’s next for getting around in our city. Sign up for the newsletter at
