WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) – New Hanover County Commissioners unanimously decided to 'wave' Wave Transit's debt on Monday night.

Wave Transit was in over $130,000 worth of debt to New Hanover County. Wave Transit leaders asked for the debt to be forgiven in order to keep several bus routes running. Routes that serve the northern part of the county and Pleasure Island were on the chopping block.

The decision came after student, veterans and job-seekers stood together at a public hearing to tell WAVE leaders what the routes meant to them.
