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.
