Just an Idea
hswerdfe wrote in octranspo
So I was reading the web on my phone (while on the bus) and decided to take a look up. I found there were nine other people doing the exact same thing as me.

And then I thought this bus has its GPS location uploaded to the internet every few seconds. It would be trivial and cheep to turn the bus into a mobile hot spot.

Has anybody at OC ever considered this?
They could even turn it into a revinue generator, by adding extra to the monthly pass if you wanted WIFI access on all busses.

Just for the record, this type of system (bus-based WiFi) has been in place on the Metrobus system for some time now. This is the transit authority in St. John's NFLD.
