Pleasure Island http://whqr.org en WAVE Transit Likely to Extend Endangered Bus Routes' Closure Date http://whqr.org/post/wave-transit-likely-extend-endangered-bus-routes-closure-date <p>Over the summer, New Hanover County cut WAVE Transit’s funding significantly from the previous year, resulting in the likely closures of routes serving northern New Hanover County and Pleasure Island. However, WAVE was granted slightly more state funding this year for its Rural Operating Assistance Program. But since WAVE won’t be able to use that money to help salvage the routes in question, it will likely extend their current closure date—September thirtieth—until after WAVE’s board meets with the New Hanover County Commission to make final decisions in October.</p> Thu, 19 Sep 2013 17:52:06 +0000 Katie O'Reilly 43363 at http://whqr.org WAVE Transit Likely to Extend Endangered Bus Routes' Closure Date
