What is Microtransit?

The new, flexible service connects Brunswick, Pender, and New Hanover Counties. Passengers can book an on-demand ride from a virtual stop within the newly expanded service area and be connected to Wave Transit’s fixed route service or brought to their destination. Wilmington Regional Microtransit is a point-to-point service available to anyone travelling within the network! Within the same familiar hours of operation as the fixed route bus service, passengers can take spontaneous trips not available with traditional fixed route.

RideMICRO will operate limited hours upon program launch. The hours of operation, Monday – Friday 6:00 am to 9:00 am  &  4:30 pm to 7:30 pm, will gradually expand to reflect the Wave Transit hours of operation, as will service areas and stops. This is anticipated to occur at the conclusion of Phase 4 which is the full program launch.

RideMICRO into Downtown Wilmington and take the Port City Trolley to-and-from your activities. Connect with a fixed route and ride to either of Wave Transit’s transfer stations. Mix-and-match services to fit your needs!

Thank you to our community partners!

Leaders from neighboring counties, towns, and transit agencies, with the support of the North Carolina Department of Transportation in this effort to expand Wave Transit’s service area and connect riders to a fixed-route system who live outside the current service area. We are excited about the partnership and are looking forward to a successful launch of the Wilmington Regional Microtransit.
