Mobile's city bus service is under new management.

By a unanimous vote, city council members approved a contract with First Transit to manage the Wave Transit System.

The company also manages bus services for the city of Montgomery.

Mayor Stimpson's administration said First Transit has proposed a plan to improve ridership in Mobile through customer service and smarter routing, all while saving money.
