Charlotte Mayor Vi Lyles has filed for re-election. 

The announcement came via Twitter on Wednesday. She asked supporters to join her at noon on Thursday at the Board of Elections where she would submit her run.

Mayor Lyles says her big focus this year will be public transportation.

In 2018, completion of the light rail and the addition of bikes and scooters for rent boosted uptown's transportation systems. Now Lyles, says she's looking to do more.
