The buses aren’t always full, so why should Wave receive more funding? 

You’re right – there are times when Wave buses are not full and the primary reason is the transportation system is not as efficient as it could be. By providing a dedicated source of funds, Wave could update its system to be more efficient and frequent with limited stops and more direct routes, keep large buses on the most used routes and place smaller buses on routes that are not in high demand, and increase on-demand microtransit for other riders. This would help increase ridership throughout the system, and lead to more users of Wave Transit.
