This new public transportation option came after a two–year process where Cabarrus County’s public transportation officials worked collaboratively with stakeholders from various human service agencies, major employers, and education institutions to determine ways to provide reliable transportation to connect rural residents with shopping and leisure destinations in Cabarrus County’s larger cities and to provide better access to jobs.

Cabarrus Links is funded by a $200,000 federal matching grant provided by the Job Access Reverse Commute (JARC) Transportation Program.

A kickoff celebration for Cabarrus Links was held Wednesday, September 30, 2009 at Concord Mills and Cabarrus Links began service on October 5, 2009.
