Wilmington Multimodal Transportation Center / Downtown Transfer Station
Located at North 3rd St and Campbell St., the Downtown Transfer Center is the first phase of a larger multimodal transportation project. The new facility will take the place of the Authority’s current Downtown Transfer Station located at 2nd Street and Princess Street. The upgraded amenities will offer customers and visitors a safer, more convenient, and more accessible option when utilizing public transportation services. 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).
A ribbon cutting and dedication ceremony is scheduled for 1:00pm on Friday, January 17, 2020 with the official opening occurring Saturday, January 18, 2020. Details regarding both items are forthcoming.
Community Open Houses
Prior to construction of the facility, feedback was solicited from residents, adjacent property owners and business owners in the Brooklyn Arts District/ North 4th St. community through a series of community meetings. Our new neighbors and the public will have an opportunity to attend one of our open houses and take a sneak peak of the facility prior to opening in winter of this year. Notes from the community meetings, as referenced above, can be found below:

Our commitment to sustainable building practices continues with the Wilmington Multimodal Transfer Center (WMMTC). The integrity of the historic Neuwirth building remains intact through adaptive reuse. The photo slideshow below shows some highlights from construction to-date.
