    Edinburgh already has free Wi-Fi on Lothian Buses.

    In fact we have had free wi-fi on the Moscow Metro since 2013, and on most major city bus, trolleybus and tram routes since 2014. It’s only a few routes which haven’t come on-line, and they are in the final phase. Suburban train routes are also being equipped.

    As far as Britain goes, I would far rather any investment in buses went toward improving rural service — frequency, punctuality, service after 6:00 p.m. and on weekends, and connections to other lines and services coordinated.
