CoastLine: Long-Term Federal Funding Questions Impact Local Public Transit

Aug 5, 2015

For most residents in the Cape Fear region, a daily bus ride is not a typical part of the day.  There are significantly more people who drive their own vehicles than those who opt for public transportation.  There are some choice riders, but most of the people who use WAVE Transit on a regular basis use it because they need it.

Today, public transportation systems across the nation are facing serious funding challenges.  On this edition of CoastLine, we explore how those challenges are playing out locally. We also learn about some of the ways Wave Transit is evolving.
