A new proposal may have the Port City looking more like the San Francisco Bay area. County commissioners heard a Wave Transit proposal that would bring a trolley system to Wilmington in the next few years.

Supporters said a trolley would fit well with Wilmington’s Historic District. Wave Transit officials made the presentation in hopes of securing funding for economic and potential ridership studies.

“This is an especially good time for transit funding because of the stimulus package that’s coming out of Washington, D.C.,” said Bill Bryden of Wave Transit. “I think it’s likely that somewhere there we’ll be able to find the funding for a study.”

Wave Transit hopes to conduct the study with in the next two or three months.

Bryden said replacing buses with a trolley system could have a positive impact on the environment and increase ridership.
