WiFi in RapidPenang buses
…. and it’s free.
RapidPenang Sdn Bhd (RapidPenang) is the first bus company in the country to have WiFi facility in its buses in a move to get more people to use public transportation (Correction: According to Odyssey Prestige Coaches Sdn Bhd, they have been providing this free service since Nov 2008 for their KL-Sing-KL route and the KL Hop-On-Hop-Off service).
Its chief executive officer, Azhar Ahmad, said for a start, the company was installing the facility in two of its buses, one on the bus which plies between Balik Pulau and the Bayan Lepas International Airport and the other, the one which plies the Teluk Bahang-Batu Feringgi-Weld Key route.
He said the use of the WiFi facility would be free and that the buses would have special stickers for easy identification by passengers.
I hope we will start to see more places with free WiFi. Is it time to consider a PDA like mobile phone?
