A Midlands bus company is offering free Wi-Fi to passengers on some of its buses.

Trent Barton is using Wi-Fi technology from Moovera to offer free web access to passengers travelling on the commuter service between Nottingham and Derby.

Trent Barton will also use the Moovbox platform for GPS-based automatic vehicle location to keep track of the
fleet via Moovera's MoovManage remote monitoring system.

"We've made a significant investment to modernise our fleet of more than 270 buses and are continually seeking new ways to provide a better service to our customers," said Mark Greasley, commercial manager at Trent Barton.

"By putting Wi-Fi hotspots on our vehicles we're offering passengers a way to make the most of the forty minute journey. We chose the Moovera Moovbox as it offers us not only the managed Wi-Fi service, but also GPS tracking and the ability in the future to connect other systems such as ticketing and security over the internet to our operations centre," he said.
