LYNX Buses Now Offer Free Wi-Fi
The Central Florida Regional Transportation Authority (LYNX) has now added Wi-Fi to all 300 buses. This customer amenity is the first technology tool the agency plans to roll out in 2017.
When customers board buses they will need to make sure Wi-Fi has been turned on in their device’s settings, select “LYNX-Bus WIFI”, accept the terms and conditions, and then enjoy free Wi-Fi during the ride. “LYNX-Bus WIFI” will not require a password.
“Our board of directors envisions transforming LYNX into an agency that is attractive to all Central Floridians,” said Edward L. Johnson, LYNX chief executive officer. “As we continue to roll out new technologies which will allow passengers to read and send emails, communicate through social media, and read their favorite electronic publication or correspondence while our operators take them safely to their destination, this is the first step in meeting that expectation.”
The service will be provided by Verizon Wireless. The “LYNX-Bus WIFI” main page also will allow the agency to sell advertising.
LYNX already offers customers “LYNX Public” Wi-Fi at LYNX Central Station.
Other modern technology enhancements the agency is currently working on include a mobile fare payment system and applications for customers to plan their trip including finding the location of buses.
