The Charlotte Area Transit System (CATS) and the State of North Carolina Department of Transportation have extended RFQ deadline to September 17, 2019 from September 11, 2019 to deliver the transit-oriented development in Charlotte under the Public-Private Partnership (PPP) scheme. 

Gateway Station project is a transit facility that features Amtrak trains, buses, the streetcar, and future light-rail service into one centralized location. The project broke ground in 2018 on the infrastructure portion, which includes 2,000 feet of rail track, signals, five new bridges, and a boarding platform, with expected completion by 2022. 

The RFQ seeks the construction of a 12,000-square-foot local and express bus facility, a 27,000-square-foot Amtrak station, “aesthetic enhancements” such as lighting under the new bridges, at least 40 affordable-housing units, and a multi-use path that provides north-south connectivity across the site and integrates retail space.
