Interdit de surfer en conduisant !

Le problème avec une voiture, c'est que le conducteur ne peut pas être connecter sur internet et surfer. A l'inverse, le bus de demain ne pourra pas faire l'économie d'un connectivité totale, gratuite et fiable (voir également précédente note).

What is The Connected Bus?

The Connected Bus is an important element in urban transportation. It is a pilot project that began in 2007 as part of the Connected Urban Development program at Cisco. Today, the San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency (SFMTA) and Cisco Internet Business Solutions Group are working together in designing, developing, and delivering The Connected Bus for the City and County of San Francisco.

Why Was The Connected Bus Created?

The Connected Bus was created to encourage SFMTA customers in San Francisco to use Muni by improving the quality of their ride. A better ride includes having a reliable and safe ride, spending less time in traffic, being exposed to fewer carbon emissions, and having access to timely route information.

The Connected Bus was showcased at Connected Urban Development Global Conference 2008 in San Francisco, February 20—21, 2008

The Connected Bus supports SFMTA's Transit Effectiveness Project, which was developed to review, evaluate and make recommendations on the existing Muni system. Making Muni more reliable is a primary goal of the project.
