We are so grateful to the Wilmington Historic Foundation for the recognition and nomination of Padgett Station, Wave Transit's downtown transfer center, for the 2021 Preservation Award! The integrity of the building, which served as the old VW garage, was preserved and serves as the first project in a larger vision for the Wilmington Multimodal Transportation Center. A big thank you to Monteith for bringing the project design and vision to fruition.

Exciting News! Our newly renovated downtown Transfer hub, Padgett Station, has been selected to receive a Historic Wilmington Foundation Preservation Award! Padgett Station, located at 520 North 3rd St., was completed in 2020 and was an adaptive reuse of the historic Neuwirth building, which was built in 1938. The original character of the Neuwirth building was preserved whenever possible and original design elements were thoughtfully incorporated into the new design. A standout example of this preservation-focused design approach is the preservation of the original ceiling trusses and their incorporation as an architectural feature in the customer lounge. Stop by and take a look anytime, Padgett Station is open 7 days per week!

Though changes go into affect on 4/30 for gatherings and some outdoor areas, these changes do not apply to our outdoor transfer stations and bus stops. Federal law still requires face coverings be worn while on board, at bus stops, and at transfer stations. #Transit #SafetyFirst

Governor Cooper outlined plans to bring summer back, with a goal of June 1 to relax more statewide restrictions if 2/3 of NC has received at least one dose of the COVID-19 vaccine. In a step toward that goal, the outdoor mask mandate will be lifted as of Friday, April 30 at 5 PM.

Bus driver on 202 is rude as hell. She fussed out and older man for showing his id. She said he was holding up the line. What line it was me and him.
Thank you Wave Transit for getting me in line, rather quickly I might add for my first Covid- 19 shot. It’s a pleasure to know when your employer cares for you, and are doing all they can to keep us safe during this pandemic.
Thank you for being a part of our lives. It was a pleasure working with you.

Why are you cutting back service till 9 AM on Saturdays? Some of us have to be to work earlier than that and rely on the bus t get us there. Do we not matter anymore?
Does the downtown trolley not run during the week anymore? We were waiting to take our son and it never showed.
i hate this place
Bus driver 209 Independence is always rude. Every morning . I do not know her name.
Why does it take an hour just to get somewhere in this small town
