The West Corridor is a proposed streetcar line to serve as an extension for the LYNX network in Charlotte, North Carolina. It is slated for completion by 2034. It would connect Charlotte-Douglas International Airport in west Charlotte with the Charlotte Transportation Center in Uptown Charlotte.[1]

It is proposed to follow a primarily east-west path along West Morehead Street and Wilkinson Boulevard, through west Charlotte. Currently, it is estimated to be 6.4 miles (10.3 km) with 10 stops and be complete between Uptown and Ashley Road by 2029 at a cost of $163 million. The second phase between Ashley Road and the Charlotte-Douglas International Airport is scheduled for completion by 2034 at a cost of $324 million.[1]
