UNCW Seahawk Shuttle Routes & Schedule

UNCW Seahawk Shuttle services for the 2021-2022 academic year resumed August 18, 2021 with revised routes, new tracking options, and sustained 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. Prior to COVID-19 health crisis, UNCW and Wave Transit offered Park and Ride services to a designated, off campus park and ride location across College Road at the intersections of Hurst & Hoggard. Park and Ride shuttle services have been suspended for the 2020-2021 academic year. 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

Safety measures and revised practices implemented at the onset of the COVID-19 health crisis to minimize risk and help protect both customers and employees remains in effect. 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. At this time, face coverings are required on all Seahawk shuttles and in all Wave Transit facilities. Learn about all our efforts HERE.
