According to WWAY, next year we may have a trolley service that runs from Carolina Beach to Kure Beach. But for this to happen, the WAVE bus service is going to have to convince county and city leaders to tack on extra $7 for New Hanover County vehicle registrations.
From the WWAY article:
This afternoon the Cape Fear Public Transportation Authority discussed adding an extra fee for vehicle registration. That money would help pay for public transit to the beach (Wrightsville, Carolina & Kure)...
Wave Transit Executive Director Albert Eby said the state Department of Transportation would collect and allocate an extra vehicle registration fee to Wave to fund three separate routes to the area's beaches.
"The plan will be that starting next year, during the tourist season, we can provide trolley service both to Wrightsville Beach, as well as a connection from Monkey Junction to Carolina Beach and then a trolley service on Pleasure Island," Eby said.
