Due to Hurricane Florence, the Duplin County Transportation Department will shut down service operations early on Wednesday and will not be operational on Thursday. It is also anticipated that Transportation will not be operating on Friday. Next week’s scheduled services will depend on road conditions.

If you have trips scheduled for Wednesday, September 12th, be advised that we will not be able to pick up clients after 12:00 noon. In preparation for the storm, we will need to bring our vans to a secure location and give our drivers time to get home safely. If you are not able to be dropped off at your home or last destination by 12:00 noon, Wednesday September 12th, you will need to locate another form of transportation.

Please stay safe. If you need to cancel a reservation or have questions, please call 910-296-2333. Again, we will be awaiting the outcome of the storm and will make plans on next week’s transportation services accordingly.

From the Director: It is with a very heavy heart that I let all of you know that tomorrow, August 31st will be my last day with Duplin County Public Transportation. I have been with this department for almost 17 years, and have recently accepted a position as the new transit director for Sampson County. It has been my pleasure to work with this department and to be able to help provide the transportation services in Duplin County. I have met some wonderful people (some in person, and others over the phone), and will miss talking with all of you. I am leaving this department in good hands, and I am quite certain that Denita, Latonya, Dana, Frances, and all of the drivers will continue to provide quality service without missing a beat. Thank you, the riders, for allowing us the opportunity to serve!
