If all goes well, we could soon have wireless internet connections on some MetroBuses.
Metro Transit has launched a test program to gauge how wireless internet performs on a select number of buses. The program, which will last approximately 60 days.
“Being able to access the internet while you’re on the go is an incredible resource for workers, students and anyone who wants a more enjoyable ride,” said Jessica Mefford-Miller, Executive Director of Metro Transit on the company's website. “We are excited to launch this pilot, so we can determine the feasibility of adding WiFi to our transit system. This is part of our commitment to introduce new technology and amenities to Metro Transit so that we can continue to provide our customers with the best possible transit experience.”
