Under the plans, trains and buses across Scotland will be installed with the technology in a bid to entice more people onto public transport. In so doing, it is hoped that the nation’s carbon footprint will be reduced.
A spokesperson for the Scottish government said: "Although the provision of wireless internet access on buses in Scotland is solely a matter for individual bus operators, the Scottish Government through Transport Scotland is already developing a business case for wireless provision on ScotRail services as part of the franchise agreement, which will report in due course."
As no strangers to the daily commute, we’d love the chance to attend to a bit of work in the morning or watch some catch-up TV to break up the journey. However, given the appalling state of most rail services, frankly we’d just settle for trains that actually arrive on time.
