Stagecoach increases free Wi-Fi coverage in £1.1million investment

Business travellers are set to benefit from free Wi-Fi internet access on six new Stagecoach double deckers which operate between Sheffield and Chesterfield, via Dronfield.

It is the third Stagecoach route in the region to introduce free Wi-Fi - Stagecoach’s X17 and 120 services also provide passengers with internet access.

Passenger numbers have doubled since 2008 on route 43 (which connects Sheffield and Chesterfield via Dronfield), suggesting more business travellers are turning to public transport in that area.

The recent announcement that some rail fares will rise by an average of 6.2% in January (more than double the rate of inflation) may also make bus journeys more appealing to business travellers.

    i am now reading about stagecoach wi-fi on the net having seen it well advertised on the side of the bus. However i have found that no bus travellers, including students, knew about anything about it. most expressed an opinion that it would not be free and that there would be an initial joining fee!
