We are pleased to announce that Wi-Fi will be added to virtually all of our city buses by the end of November. The improvements will be made as part of Oxford City Council’s ‘Super Connected Oxford’ initiative.
We’ve already fitted Wi-Fi to over half of our fleet but we are delighted that, by working with Super Connected Oxford, we are able to extend Wi-Fi to all our buses and coaches. Oxford Bus Company has been at the heart of Oxford for over 130 years so it ‘s exciting to be making a significant investment in the future of our city.
Super Connected Oxford will also make available a wireless concession in the streets of the city and Wi-Fi Hotspots in free to enter public buildings by April next year. Residents and visitors to the city can expect to enjoy free Wi-Fi in all City Council community centres, libraries and museums such as Ashmolean Museum and Museum of Natural History.
Minister of State for Culture and the Digital Economy, Ed Vaizey, says: “I think it’s fantastic that by the end of November, all the buses in Oxford will have free public Wi-Fi.
“We are investing up to £5m in making Oxford one of the UK ‘Super Connected Cities’. This latest development is all part of Government’s transformation of the digital landscape of Oxford, making it a great place to live, visit and do business.”
