Transportation Assistance

People without ways and means to evacuate need to try and coordinate a ride with:

  • Family
  • Friends
  • Neighbors
  • Church

Those who have their own methods of transportation are encouraged to assist those individuals without means of transportation. However, local officials will coordinate evacuation of residents and visitors who do not have access to private transportation resources with the support of public-school transportation buses.

When an evacuation is ordered, WAVE Transit will reduce service in non-evacuation areas and institute their Hurricane Plan. This will consist of activating the pre-identified Hurricane Bus Pick-up stations within the evacuation zones. Residents/visitors will be transported to designated shelters.

Please note that there is a limited supply of buses. Do your best to secure transportation from the area without relying on WAVE so that people who have absolutely no other means to leave may be evacuated, including Special Needs persons and the elderly.
