Delaware Transit Corporation (DTC) announces the opening of the Wilmington Transit Center, located at Front and Walnut Streets, operating as the new transfer location for most DART bus routes in downtown Wilmington.
The new transit center has the capacity to have up to 10 buses stage at one time, now allowing bus layovers without blocking city streets. The center also offers riders a smoke-free covered, seated waiting area, real-time bus displays, ticket sales, WiFi, USB charging stations, vending machines, and bike racks with a bike repair station.
Strategically located adjacent to Wilmington’s Joseph R. Biden Rail Station, the transit center provides convenient access to Amtrak, SEPTA, Greyhound/Trailways, and cabs. The center also provides parking for rental cars, and offers 90 public parking spaces, including two electric car charging stations.
“We have made significant investments in the City of Wilmington and our infrastructure that has helped create jobs, improve travel, and spur economic development,” said Governor John Carney. “This transit center will serve 75 percent of the bus routes in Wilmington, and it will make it easier for passengers in and around the city to get to their destinations.”
“This facility is in line with what we are building in Wilmington—a city for the future but one that meets the needs of today. My thanks to Governor Carney, Transportation Secretary Cohan, Delaware Transit Corporation Executive Director Sisson and all of the partners on this project for adding another plus to living, working and visiting a great city like Wilmington.” said Mayor Mike Purzycki.
