The Future Of Transportation In Charlotte
According to the 2020 census, the Charlotte area continues to grow, with more and more people calling the area home.
But as more people settle in the Queen City, they bring their vehicles with them.
In this episode of Charlotte Talks, we look at how the city is responding to traffic congestion — whether it’s expanding roads and the city’s existing light rail system, encouraging public transportation and bicycling, and other innovative ways transportation is changing to serve a growing number of residents.
