New Hanover to give WAVE Transit budget boost
New Hanover County commissioners will give WAVE Transit a boost.
The board agreed to increase county funding to the bus system by $135,000 next fiscal year, for a total of $275,000 in county funds.
The move means WAVE will not have to cut routes or hours of service.
Officials said they’d like to see WAVE operate with a funding balance so that these budget gaps don’t continue to occur in the future.
