A handful of Wave Transit bus drivers have been suspended for using their cell phones while behind the wheel. The general manager of Wave Transit Operations would not confirm exactly how many were suspended, nor would he release their names. Wave Transit would only say “about four” drivers have been suspended without pay for 10 days. The majority were suspended for a second offense. Until they are back on duty, part-timers will pick up the routes. Wave Transit said riders will not be affected by the suspensions.
