AUGUST 11, 2005 -- Local Wave Transit bus riders have a reason to shake their tail feathers.
In an effort to raise ridership, Wave Transit has adopted a new pelican mascot. They want the community's help in naming it.
Wave Transit served 1.3 million riders last year, and hopes to have around 2 million in the coming year.
It costs only seventy-five cents to ride the bus, and it's a convenient way to cut down on gas prices. UNC Wilmington students ride for free.
