San Antonio Tries Bus Wi-Fi

San Antonio is wrapping up a month-long experiment that has offered free Wi-Fi internet access on some of its buses.

"For the pilot program, VIA is using a device called a "MiFi," a small wireless device that provides Internet service to up to five devices at a time. The agency has equipped two buses with the equipment.

Outfitting buses with wireless Internet is just one way VIA is trying to reach out to a more diverse group of riders, namely "choice riders," those who aren't dependent on the bus system."

Officials say they could expand the program when the system unveils new buses in its fleet in 2010.
