A one-of-a-kind new bus has been acquired by the City of South Padre Island public transportation sys­tem called The Wave.

Dubbed as the party bus due to its inside configura­tion, beachgoers and visi­tors will be able to carry items such as coolers, food, boogie boards, umbrellas, chairs and other items each time they go from one place to another.

The city bought the new bus for $70,000 with mon­ey funded by the Texas De­partment of Transportation and the Federal Transit Ad­ministration.

City officials with the tran­sit department showed off the bus before and during the Wednesday meeting of the City Council.
