Sofia Launches Free Wireless Net on Public Transportation Bus


Sofia public transportation buses serving line 111 now have free wireless internet.
The service has been launched on Monday, June 4. The buses are equipped with wireless routers of the Vivacom telecom.
The news was reported by the Deputy Mayor of SofiaLyubomir Hristov.
He says the 111 line is a pilot project and if it is proven successful, other bus lines will be equipped with wireless routers.
The project is part of the initiative to support Sofia's bid as European Culture capital in 2019.
The 111 line, which travels around the beltway, has been chosen precisely because of the longer route, where passengers spend more time on the bus.
