ATTRACTIVE MOVE: Commuters can look forward to going online via Wi-Fi from June
NUSAJAYA: COMMUTERS on the Trans Iskandar buses will be able to surf the Internet for free as these buses will be Wi-Fi enabled.
Wireless technology will be made available on about 40 of the Transit Express Bus (BeXTRA), said Mohd Gadaffie Abd Aziz, the chief executive of Iskandar Malaysia Public Transport Corporation (PAIM) which runs the bus service.
"The buses that ply the routes to JB Sentral from Kulaijaya, Ulu Tiram, Skudai, Masai and Kota Masai will have Internet access in June," he said.
"We will be the first public transportation company in Iskandar Malaysia to provide this facility.
"We believe our move will attract more people to take public transportation."
There are more than 60,000 passengers on the buses each month.
"We also want to shorten travel time for our passengers. For instance, there will be about 30 bus stops throughout the Kulaijaya-JB Sentral route. But for those taking the BeXTRA, we want to reduce the number of stops to eight," said Gadaffie.
"We want our commuters to enjoy a faster ride and at the same time, they get to surf the Internet during their journey."
