A Delaware beach town is weighing whether to launch its own transit system to try to address chronic parking woes. The city of Lewes will consider a plan at its Monday council meeting to operate a “Lewes Line” of paratransit buses as soon as late May, in time for the upcoming tourist season. Under the plan, passengers would pay $1 to ride with stops connecting the downtown area, the beaches and the Cape May-Lewes ferry terminal, among others. Proponents say transit is needed to reduce parking difficulties that increase as Lewes becomes a more popular tourist destination, particularly because the beaches and downtown retail are not adjacent.
