Delaware Department of Transportation—Wilmington Transit Center

Improving travel and spurring economic development were the main priorities for the Delaware Department of Transportation when focusing on the $10 million dollar Wilmington Transit Center (WTC) located at Front and Walnut Streets in the City of Wilmington. This new transit facility, constructed as part of a public-private partnership between DelDOT, the Delaware Transit Corporation, and Transit Center, LLC, better serves the mobility needs of those who live, work or travel to the City of Wilmington. It makes it easier for residents to reach their destinations, for tourists to explore all the City has to offer, and acts as a transportation hub for those needing to travel throughout Delaware or outside the state. Located adjacent to Wilmington’s Joseph R. Biden Rail Station, it also serves as the new transfer location for 75 percent of the bus routes in Wilmington. With the capacity to stage up to 10 buses simultaneously, the WTC aids in reducing congestion on roadways especially during peak travel times by removing the need for buses to block city streets during layovers.
