NEW HANOVER COUNTY — The public transportation authority, Wave Transit, has announced its services will end early on Tuesday.

It will stop operations at 2 p.m. A storm is expected to pass through the region, with expected winds up to 55 miles per hour and flash flooding with 1 or 2 inches of rain. The authority noted in a release it creates “unsafe conditions to operate” — particularly when wind speeds hit above 38 mph.

Fixed route bus, RideMICRO, Seahawk Shuttle, and ADA Paratransit services are anticipated to resume normally, and transfer stations will open on Wednesday, January 10.
