Surf's up: $3.5M to catch The Wave in South Padre IslandSurf's up: $3.5M to catch The Wave in South Padre Islandhttps://www.recenter.tamu.edu/news/newstalk-texas/?Item=126652016-04-01T05:00:00Z2016-04-01T22:20:00Z

​​SOUTH PADRE ISLAND - Visitors to the Island now have more room to park, and more reason to ride The Wave—the free, fixed-route bus system that operates within the city and connects to an expanded parking area near the end/entrance of the causeway.

The new parking area can accommodate 125 cars and is the first phase of a new multimodal facility that will serve as a one-stop transportation hub for the Island.

Construction of the facility— located between the access road and Padre Blvd. in front of the Pearl South Padre—is scheduled to begin this fall and be completed in 2017. 

The South Padre Island Transit Department also recently secured $3.5 million in grant funds for the second phase of the multimodal hub. 

The hub will include a transfer station used by the Island Metro—The Wave—regional transit systems and charter buses. The contract should be released by August 2016 and construction of phase two should be 12 months.
