UTA launches Internet access on 3 commuter buses

Beginning Monday, people who take the Utah Transit Authority's commuter bus from Ogden to Salt Lake City (Route 73) will have wireless Internet access.

UTA is testing Wi-Fi on three of the Route 73 buses to see whether it would work on all 40 of the agency's commuter routes. When UTA's commuter-rail system, the FrontRunner, begins service in 2008, the agency also hopes to install wireless Internet access.

"These will be some of the first buses in the nation to be connected with Wi-Fi, and perhaps if things go well, we'll have the first connected commuter-bus system in the U.S.," said UTA spokesman Justin Jones.
