UNCW Seahawk Shuttle Routes & Schedule


UNCW Seahawk Shuttle services for the 2020-2021 academic year resumed on August 19, 2020 with updated routes, new tracking options, and additional COVID-19 prevention safety measures.


Shuttle Service

The Seahawk Shuttle, in operation since 1997, was initially implemented to transport UNCW students who live within one mile of the campus to the University. Today, the shuttle also transports students and employees throughout campus and surrounding areas. The existence of the shuttle helps decrease traffic and makes movement within the campus safer and more efficient. The shuttle has decreased the need for additional surface parking at the university, thereby maintaining precious green space areas. UNCW and Wave Transit also offer Park and Ride services. The Park and Ride lot is located across College Road at the intersections of Hurst & Hoggard. Students and employees of UNCW are eligible to ride the Seahawk Shuttle and all Wave Transit buses at no cost by simply showing a valid student or employee UNSea card.

COVID-19 Prevention Safety Measures

Per CDC recommendations and best practices for transit agencies, we have undertaken organizational measures to minimize risk and help protect both customers and employees. Our actions include a daily disinfectant regiment for all vehicles, frequent cleaning of high touch surfaces, such as door handles, clear partitions between drivers and customers, new social distancing practices, and the mandatory wearing of face coverings for staff and customers.
