Wi-Fi on Seattle Buses

Wow, it looks like Seattle is doing a test of Wi-Fi via Seattle buses.

Beginning today, some riders on two Metro bus routes will be able to turn on and tune in their laptops to the Internet using Wi-Fi wireless connections in a five-month trial that could expand to other routes, if successful.

By mid-October, all 29 buses that run on Route 197 between the University District and Federal Way and Route 48 between Loyal Heights and Rainier Beach should offer their riders the free service, said Metro spokeswoman Rochelle Ogershok.
