TfL Begin Trial of Free WiFi Wireless Internet on Two Buses in London

Wednesday, Aug 6th, 2014 (12:27 pm) - Score 1,063

Transport for London (Tfl) has announced that they’ve launched a new trial of free wireless Internet (wifi) connectivity on two of their buses in the city of London, which is being tested alongside the addition of an upper deck seat indicator and enhanced passenger information screens.

The WiFi trial will be conducted on both a route 12 bus, operating between Dulwich and Oxford Circus, and a route RV1 bus, which operates between Covent Garden and Tower Hill.

Assuming the trial is successful then it’s hoped that a sponsor could be found to help roll-out the service to more of the fleet.

Simon Reed, TfL’s Head of Technical Services Group, said:

London buses have always led the way with new technology on its network, benefiting the millions of passengers who make the most of the extensive network every day. Innovation is a key theme of the Year of the Bus and we have worked with our suppliers to find new and innovative ways to further improve the experience of our passengers. These trials will establish whether this technology provides genuine benefits to people on the move.”

The WiFi trial is being conducted in cooperation with Bluepod Media.
