Wi-Fi Bus

Post by Sneha on Wed 9 Nov 2011 - 21:57

Rose-Hill Transport Ltd. has implemented this service a few months ago. I have tried it several times and it didn't work. What are your opinions on this subject?

Don't they offer a helpline for this service?

I haven't seen any helpline, lest I think Rose-Hill Transport Ltd. should be contacted for this issue.

Does this feature really help you during your travel? I mean it's not like you're in a limousine when you're travelling in the bus.

The speed is only 64kb/s which is no good in my case. The thing that wasnt good was that the sun made it impossible for me to enjoy youtube videos on my ipod touch.

Finally, I saw a notice in the RHT bus which said that if the Wi-Fi doesn't work properly, you should complain with the conductor who will pass the message to the authority concerned in order to make things work.

In my opinion, the 'Wi-Fi Bus' was implemented so that RHT could attract more travellers in their buses.

Rose-Hill Transport Ltd. only operates in the Rose-Hill (and its suburbs) - Port-Louis routes. So, compared to other bigger companies, which already cover a greater part of the island including some of the routes of Rose-Hill Transport Ltd., Rose-Hill Transport Ltd. has a limited working perimeter and it has chosen to innovate to attract travellers.

In my view, they should be given credit for that because unlike the National Transport Corporation, which charges extra for value added services like air conditioning and access to daily newspapers, Rose-Hill Transport Ltd. gives it for free. Note that these days, the newspapers are no more available in the NTC Blueline buses and there was no decrease in their fares.

A minimum of Rs 5 for a few minutes of air conditioning... I didn't ask the NTC (National Transport Corporation) for this kind of service, so why do I have to pay them that extra money? confused

I got the answer why there is WiFi in RHT buses.

To the best of my memory, the extra Rs 3 (Rs 5 now?) is only on the Blue Line bus service. Besides air conditioning. no 3-passenger seats, and having the newspaper, there is also more legroom on the Blue Line buses.

Anecdote on Blue Line: I was reading a magazine while waiting for the bus to depart. The conductor politely asked if the music was disturbing me, he could turn down the volume.

After the last increase of bus fares, the Blueline buses charge Rs 5 to Rs 8/9 more. As I said earlier, I don't find the newspapers on those buses anymore and even the radio speakers have been removed in certain buses. As for the extra legroom and air conditioning, they are already present in the RHT buses at no extra cost.

I normally get annoyed with some of those Blueline conductors. In RHT buses they apply the air conditioning mildly making everyone comfortable. However, in Blueline buses they run the air conditioning at full gear, that is, at 17 degress Celsius, which makes me very uncomfortable. When you ask them to set it at mild temperatures, they tell you that it can't be adjusted but when you take a look at the driver's dash board, you can clearly see that it can be adjusted from 17 degrees Celsius to 25 degrees Celsius via a hard knob. What makes the situation worst though are the broken air vents of their air conditioning system as in the picture below.

On another note, I think it would be better to change the topic title to a more appropriate one as this topic is allowing us to discuss on much more than just on the Wi-Fi Bus. What do you think, friends?
