Why Mobility Matters
Our region of 2.6 million is expected to add 1.4 million more people by 2045. Over the next two decades, the Charlotte region is expected to receive two-thirds of North Carolina’s growth. In the upstate of South Carolina, York and Lancaster counties have the highest growth rates in the region. And this new population, whether young professionals or seniors, has specific transportation needs and expectations.
