During the last 45 years, WAVE has played a vital part in providing bus access and accessibility, including for older adults and people with disabilities.
As we move forward, WAVE aims to be the preferred transportation option for all in our communities, ensuring our community needs are met socially, environmentally, and economically. Public transportation is important in making our area equitable, our environment fresh, connecting people to jobs, recreation, and health care, while supporting local businesses.
Please tell us your thoughts and encourage folks you know to do the same because you all matter for where we go moving forward.
