Deliveries and Purchase Orders

Any products purchased by Wave Transit may only be received by us in one of two ways:

1. The product may be delivered to a Wave Transit facility. Deliveries may be made to:

  • 1480 Castle Hayne Road, Wilmington, NC 28401 (primary address for parts deliveries; no USPS deliveries)
  • 505 Cando Street, Wilmington, NC 28405
  • P.O. Box 12630, Wilmington, NC 28405 (USPS only)

2. The product may be picked up at your facility by a Wave Transit employee only if that employee has an authorized paper purchase order for the requested items.  The purchase order must be signed and approved by either the Deputy Director (Megan Matheny) or Director of Fiance & Administration (Joe Mininni).  This is a change of procedure.  The Cape Fear Public Transportation Authority is not liable for products received by anyone without a valid purchase order.  To confirm the validity of a purchase order please contact Kim Mee, Accounting Coordinator, at (910)202-2064 or by eamil to kmee@wavetransit.com to confirm the purchase order.

Refunds and Credits

Any vendor that needs to return funds to the Authority, i.e. a core refund, must do so by applying the refund to the account, or mailing a check made out to the Cape Fear Public Transportation Authority. No cash may be given to a Wave employee to cover this refund.
