FREE Wi-Fi is coming to Winnipeg Transit buses!
The city has started a year long pilot project that will bring FREE Wi-Fi to 12 buses on various routes throughout the city. If everything goes well, expect more buses to get the service.
Buses with free Wi-Fi will be clearly marked. Transit tools such as NAVIGO, Telebus and WinnipegTransit.com will also indicate Wi-Fi-enabled trips with a Wi-Fi icon.
“This pilot project is an important step to take to not only improve the quality of the service we provide transit riders, but also improve the overall function of the system,” said Mayor Brian Bowman. “Being innovative in how we deliver services and apply innovative solutions should not end with transit, it needs to apply across all areas of the civic service and creating the standing policy committee for innovation has helped ensure creative and innovative thought is used to improve the quality and efficiency of the services we provide to Winnipeggers.”
