Wave Transit launches microtransit service to improve quality of public transportation in Cape Fear region

  • Date: 10/11/2021

Wave Transit launched a new regional on-demand ride-sharing pilot service called RideMICRO. The program hopes to provide flexible transportation to portions of Brunswick, New Hanover and Pender counties.

This one-year pilot project is 100 percent grant funded through a partnership with the North Carolina Department of Transportation (NCDOT). Wave Transit has also teamed up with Brunswick Transit System (BTS) and Pender Adult Services (PAS) to establish the program.

“Microtransit is designed to be responsive, economical, and accessible,” said Marie Parker, executive director for Wave Transit. “It is very similar to a private app-based rideshare but will be an extension of our current transit network.”
