City of York Council's ICT team has further connected the city through the York bus Wi-Fi project, with the help of DCMS.
Launched in June 2014, the bus Wi-Fi project seeks to support local industry through enabling residents, visitors and businesspeople to connect to the internet while using bus services. It is expected that the project will lead to improving business efficiency and encourage increased usage of the city's excellent public transportation.
The bus companies; First York, who operate the Park & Ride and other city services, Coastliner, who provide York to Leeds services, and Arriva, for the York – Selby services, are partnering with the council to deliver wireless connectivity to their passengers.
The equipment has been funded through a grant from DCMS and offered to local bus operators within a concession model.
The services are run and managed by the bus companies. Their points of contact are:
