WILMINGTON, NC (StarNewsOnline.com) — The authority that oversees Wave Transit voted Thursday to pass a budget that would eliminate bus routes to northern New Hanover County and to Pleasure Island.

But the buses can't officially be halted for 90 days, and it is possible the routes could have a second act.

At the same meeting, the Cape Fear Public Transportation Authority passed a resolution urging New Hanover County to forgive a $133,000 loan – a move that could allow the routes to continue.

Prior to the new routes WAVE already had problems. The primary problem is still a lack of riders.

Do they really need all of those giant busses all day long? Not one peep from “management” concerning that.

That $133,000 loan was MY (tax) money and I want it back WITH interest.

In private business the management would look at ways to cut cost, increase efficiency and have it where the customer covers the cost of operating. But in government you don’t have to do that. Maybe if Wave put their prices where the users cover the operating costs, they could use smaller empty vehicles to drive laps around town and eliminate unprofitable routes.
