Work Begins on Wilmington, DE, Transit Center

Delaware Gov. John Carney, Sen. Tom Carper (D-DE) and Wil­mington Mayor Michael Purzycki joined state Transportation Secretary Jennifer Cohan, Delaware Transit Corporation (DTC) Chief Executive Officer John ­Sisson and other state and local officials at recent ceremonies to mark the beginning of construction on the Wilmington Transit Center. 

Sisson said, “We’re excited to break ground on this state-of-the art transit center, providing our customers with a convenient multimodal hub within the city of Wilmington.”

Carney said, “We are making millions of dollars of needed infrastructure investments across the city, and this is another milestone project for Wilmington. This transit center will serve thousands of customers every day and provide the convenience and amenities that they deserve.”

The $10 million project, due to be completed in December 2019, is being built completely with state and private funds as part of a public-private partnership between DelDOT/DTC and a consortium of private companies.

The new facility, located adjacent to Wilmington’s Joseph R. Biden Rail Station, will be served by most bus routes in the city, providing convenient access to Amtrak, Southeastern Pennsylvania Transportation Authority, Greyhound/Trailways intercity buses and cabs. It will have the capacity to serve up to 10 buses at one time while offering such passenger amenities as a covered, seated waiting area; real-time bus displays; Wi-Fi; USB charging stations; vending machines and bike racks with a bike repair station.
