Charlotte Area Transit System (CATS) SBLRF operations and maintenance facilities
3200 South Blvd. Charlotte
The IFMA Carolinas will be touring the CATS (Charlotte Area Transit System) SBLRF (South Boulevard Light Rail Facility) on Thursday, March 9, from 11:00-12:30.  The tour will include the Rail Car Maintenance shop area and the Rail Operations Control Center (ROCC).  The Rail Car Maintenance shop is where a staff of mechanics is responsible for the maintenance of any vehicles that travel the light rail, including street cars.  This shop is primarily responsible for maintaining a fleet of LRV S70 (low-floor light rail vehicles), across 4 platforms, and including 100 through 300 series cars.  We will be touring the shop facilities, so closed-toed shoes are required and long pants are preferred.  Safety vests will be provided for the tour.  The ROCC is the command center for the CATS light rail system and we look forward to seeing inside their operations.  As command center, the tour may have to be cut short if there is an emergency in the ROCC.
The tour starts at 11 a.m. and will wrap up by 12:30.  Lunch will be provided for all attendees.  We are limited to 40 attendees, so please register early to save your spot!
