CurbedWire: "Connected" Bus Invades SF

New, 2 comments

ALL AROUND SAN FRANCISCO—

Via the horn of plenty that is the Curbed SF inbox: Cisco's totally inconspicuous "Connected Bus" is out and about again, transversing the city right now. (Don't walk, run.) The bus was developed by the city and sent off on its maiden voyage in February, as a shill for the ever-beleaguered MUNIs system. Using "advanced internet technology" in order to improve riders' in-transit experience, the Connected Bus provides free, wireless connection to the Interweb, touch screen units that track MUNI arrival times (ha!), and a constant stream of pro-environment propaganda running along a set of external LED displays. Says our reader: "hope they don't send this shit down through the loin. Those displays aint on THAT securely."
