Free WiFi and USB charging points on Metrobus

Free WiFi and USB charging points on Metrobus

Travelling by bus to Manor Royal Business District and Gatwick Airport just got even more productive now that Metrobus has fitted its entire fleet with free WiFi and the main services services in the area now have USB charging points at every seat.

It means passengers can get connected on every journey, check their emails on social media, surf the web anytime and anywhere during their journey and charge their phone, tablet or laptop.

Metrobus Managing Director Martin Harris said: “We’ve invested in WiFi and USB chargers because we know these are busy commuting routes and want to make the experience as efficient for our customers as possible.  There’s a lot of exciting business growth in this area that will attract more workers – but no one in today’s society wants that to result in more cars on the road. We aim to make bus travel as convenient and accessible as possible so we can get people out of cars and onto public transport.

“This is just another way we make the bus all round good value and a viable and attractive alternative for busy people.”

Fastway services 10, 20 & 100 and Routes 4, 5, 200 & 400, which carry commuters to and from Gatwick and Manor Royal, have been fitted with USB charging devices – optimised for smart phones – which are lit up for easy visibility.

WiFi has been fitted to all 143 buses in the Metrobus fleet.
