WILMINGTON -- Wave Transit is hoping to solve the problems of Wilmington bus riders. It held a public meeting Thursday. The room at the Wave Transit office was filled with concerned bus riders. Hands raised immediately when Wave's route committee chairman Andy Koeppel opened the forum to questions and concerns. Residents asked the Wave Transit board members if they have ever tried getting around using the bus system. A number of people also talked about how difficult it is for elderly and disabled people to locate the new bus locations. They feel the new system is confusing, especially when trying to get to the hospital or a doctors appointment. Wilmington resident Paul Zanzuski said, "I went to the hospital one day, and I said to myself, where the hell are we going? We went to Target store, and I wanted to go to the hospital. Well we got to the hospital eventually, an hour later." Residents also voiced concerns about how the route maps are difficult to interpret. They want to able to easily plan a bus trip to their destination. And for everyone who missed Thursday's meeting, there will be another one. It'll take place next Thursday, May 1, from noon to 1:00 p.m. at Wave's office on Castle Street. The public is also invited to Wave's board meetings. Those take place Thursday nights at 7:00.
