“SFMTA/Muni announces the completion of its service schedule for the Connected Bus pilot project. Service ended May 15, 2009.
The Connected Bus improves the customer experience by providing wireless Internet access and interactive displaysof real-time information along the route, including the status of connecting routes at key transfer points. In addition, it provides Muni operations with a running “health” check on the bus of the mileage, fuel use, internal bus systems, passenger loading, and maintenance schedules to improve efficiency and reliability of the fleet. Instant “emergency” links from the touchscreen monitors to the bus operator and the police may one day provide added security features.”
So now it’s just a regular old disconnected bus?
