Surfing on Rapid Buses In Penang



On 13th May 2009, Rapid Penang launched the high speed WiFi service in two of their fleet of buses here for a trial period of three months. Passengers can surf the Net, Facebook, check emails or even watch videos on the You Tube using their laptops or handphones with internet access at 3.5G speed while on board the bus. Wow...just imagine high speed entertainment while travelling on a bus, pretty cool.

The WiFi service is currently available on two long distance routes :
101 - Batu Ferringhi-Weld Quay route via Burma Road
401A - Balik Pulau-Airport-Weld Quay

You can expect to see the service extended to all their 180 buses in the state if it becomes a hit among passengers. Let's hope it works.

A big applause to Rapid Penang for being the first bus company to take the initiative to provide this service to the general public of Penang.
