Wi-Fi on AC Transitís Commuter Buses

AC Transit in Oakland, CA, recently introduced to service the first 16 of 54 new commuter-style coaches for the transbay commute to San Francisco. Amenities of the new locally built vehicles from Gillig include free Wi-Fi, upholstered high-back seats, and individual reading lamps.

The new low floor buses are the third group acquired as part of AC Transit’s “A Better Ride” campaign and its Buy American Goods policy. Earlier this year, the agency introduced 60 low floor 40-foot buses from Gillig and 23 60-foot articulated buses from New Flyer. The balance of the current order is expected to arrive before spring.
