SEAFORD, Del.- More than 500 buses and 63 bus routes run in Delaware through DART but some say that isn't enough.

"A lot of people is out of work and they need transportation to get to work and look for jobs, people are struggling and more bus and transit would be the best thing," Shamba Carter said.

So the state is looking into expanding service but you won't see a lot of changes in Sussex County. The major change southern Delaware will see is service running later in Kent County till 9pm.

Shamba Carter says he would ride the bus if there were more options.

"It's poor because people got to be at work on time and the bus schedule is mixed up, it's not like it should be," he said.

Changes to DART's Paratransit program will be seen in Kent and Sussex counties. The agency is trying to implement a senior ride program.

But the cost for paratransit and regular bus fares could double under DART's new plan.

They should make it as cheap as possible," Carter said. "People are on a budget now so everything matters."
