Charlotte, NC commuters? I need your help.

Hey there. I will be working in Charlotte for 3-6 months, starting June 1st. I have a couple of concerns right now, and maybe a local can help.

1) I saw plenty of bikes when I visited for the job interview. How is commuting in the area? I can only assume I'll be within 10 miles of downtown and will use my bike, and the bus when needed. Is the public transportation system good, bad, early, late, etc?

2) Living arrangements. I am looking for a cheap studio apartment, sublet, or room for rent for at least 3 months of my stay. Working during the week and driving back home (2 hours) on the weekends. Any tips on areas to look in, or any other help is greatly appreciated.

Thanks all
