Wilmington Carpool Program Gets State Funds

By Carrie Wellman

Wilmington, NC – A program promoting carpooling in Wilmington will get thousands of dollars from the state to encourage alternative forms of transportation.

With the help of new state funding, Wilmington Cape Fear Breeze program hopes to get more drivers using alternative transportation.

Breeze coordinator Lawless Bean says the program has a comprehensive website offering a carpool database.

The state gave Cape Fear Breeze $53,000. Bean says the city will kick in matching funds for advertising and to build up the database.
