Bus From Lake To Downtown Wilmington

The News Reporter
In a rare move of cross-county cooperation, Wilmington Wave Transit and Columbus County Transportation are launching a public bus service from Whiteville to downtown Wilmington.

The Columbus Connector is scheduled to roll Jan. 2, 2006 and is aimed at people who want to work in construction trades in the booming Wilmington market. For $3 per person each way, riders can go from Hill’s Food Center parking lot at Lake Waccamaw to the Wilmington waterfront, where the bus will make a loop before stopping at the downtown bus stop. Transfers to other Wave Transit busses are $1 and the downtown loop trolley is free.

Anyone interested in riding the Columbus Connector or learning more about the program should call Columbus County Transportation at 642-7201 or 641-3929.

Not a bad idea. They are getting a $74000 grant to cover the first years cost.

As of today the service has been running for 4 days with no one riding it. This is sad, here you have a $6 round trip bus ride to Wilmington and yet no one is using it. There are a lot of construction jobs in the Wilmington area and a lot of laid off construction workers in Columbus County. I guess they like it.
