Starting Thursday, there may be a new bus line in town, unless county public transport authorities have anything to say about it. The privately owned Carolina Beach Shuttle will provide service from Monkey Junction to Carolina Beach. It will be open Thursday through Sunday between 9:00 a.m. and 9:00 p.m. The assistant director of Wave Transit told NewsChannel Three that Wave's lawyers are looking into any conflicts of interest with their service. If it does, shuttle owner Bethany Golden may be forced to close down. "Well they've never came to Carolina Beach as far as I know. And I don't think it's fair for the citizens out here in Carolina Beach to be left out of some kind of transportation other than taxi," said Golden. Wave does have plans to expand to Carolina Beach, but no money to pay for it. Golden said she is coordinating with Wave to make it easy for people to ride Wave to Monkey Junction, then hop on the shuttle to the beach.
