Downtown Transit Center
To be located at North 3rd St and Campbell St., the new Downtown Transit Center will offer residents and visitors more safety, convenience, and accessibility on their way to work or play. The project is a collaborative effort between the City of Wilmington, the Wilmington Metropolitan Planning Organization (WMPO), and the Cape Fear Public Transportation Authority (Wave Transit).
On Thursday, November 15, 2018, Wave Board members, funding partners, and local elected officials participated in the ceremonial groundbreaking of the Downtown Wilmington Transit Center. See a video below from the groundbreaking ceremony.
It is our desire that the facility should harmonize with its environment, that it should be a handsome addition to the area, and that its operation should mesh seamlessly with the activities of the neighborhood. For this, we are seeking input from stakeholders: local residents, adjacent property owners, and business operating in the area. Stakeholder meetings will occur on an as needed basis. Notes from the first meeting can be found below:

- WMMTC Stakeholder and Community Meeting- Tuesday, October 17, 2017
Our commitment to sustainable building practices continues with the Wilmington Multimodal Transfer Center (WMMTC), which will be built to meet LEED silver standards. This project also includes an additional sustainability feature: the adaptive reuse of the historic Neuwirth building. The photo slideshow below shows some highlights from construction to-date.
