It'd be nice but it really wouldn't have much impact on traffic. It'd move people from the airport to Uptown and probably put the cab companies that barely survive in Charlotte out of business.
Yeah a train from the Airport to downtown would trump everything
People on the west side are not really clogging up our roads during rush hour because few people on that side of town work 9-5 jobs in Uptown or Ballantyne.
Despite that, I'd still love to see an airport line because I'd love to be able to walk to the train station, hop on a train to the airport, and get on my flight without having to deal with parking my car or paying for days of parking.
Anyway, I'm just glad to see that the line is being funded. I hope more follow it in the future. The Blue Line thus far has exceeded ridership projections and with all the new projects being announced, its use will only grow more.
