WILMINGTON -- The rising cost of fuel has also put the brakes on some of Wave Transit's services. The agency is dealing with a $265,000 budget shortfall -- mostly due to diesel costs. Wave Transit buys about 1,000 gallons of diesel a day, plus gas. Major route changes go into effect March 31, but to save money, instead of service every half hour a bus will come by every hour. Wave Transit also reduced the hours of one of its trolleys. To make up the shortfall, Wave Transit will ask the city and county for the money.
