What does safe social distancing on public transit look like? Whenever possible, please keep a 6 foot distance between yourself and others, wear a face mask or face covering, and limit your trips to essential travel only. We are sanitizing our vehicles daily and taking other preventative measures to minimize risk to customers and employees, but we need everyone's help to Stop the Spread! https://www.wavetransit.com/corona-virus-prevention-efforts/

As unprecedented numbers of employees are telecommuting to reduce the spread of Covid 19, there has been a major decrease in traffic congestion in the Wilmington Area. The weather is also warming up which might mean you want to take a short stroll or bike ride at the end of the work day to get out of the house. Use this opportunity of less traffic to refresh yourself on rules of the road and how to Be A Looker.

This month we will be posting features of the new Go Coast website! We can’t always build our way out of congestion. Go Coast provides alternative and sustainable transportation options to those who live, work, and play in the Cape Fear Region.
Transportation Demand Management (TDM) emphasizes the movement of people rather than motor vehicles. The main goal of TDM is to mitigate the growth of traffic congestion by encouraging the use of alternative transportation such as bicycling, walking, carpooling, and transit; so that while the population grows, your commute time stays the same.

We need to fight like there is no tomorrow for our much needed, planned for 23 years Cape FearCrossing/Skyway. That is the most important thing our rapidly growing area needs.

Leland can join us or they can get out of the way....Get it done. Get it built. #BuildTheCapeFearCrossingNow
