Child bus pass holders get free web access which can be used to catch up on homework or, more importantly, link up each others' PSP games consoles.
The Wi-Fi access point on each bus also incorporates GPS, which means parents can keep an eye on the location of their child's bus.
They can do this via a Google Maps interface via the Green Bus website.
