Facility Groundbreaking 

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. The center is located at North 3rd and Campbell St. and when completed will provide more safety, accessibility, and convenience for transit customers on their daily commutes.


Stakeholder Meetings

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:
