Bangalore Metro To Have WiFi Connectivity (?)

Bangalore is known for its traffic situation and Bangalore Metro is the most audacious step in solving the infrastructure issue the city has been going through.

Inspired by Delhi Metro which has set standards for others to follow, Bangalore Metro will have WiFi connectivity (reports ET).bangalore_metro

The project, though a year behind schedule is expected to carry 30,000 passengers a day. And while we wait for these (WiFi) rumors to gain some substance, here are a few ‘WiFi rumors’ that never came true:

– Free Wi-Fi access to be provided to the commuters in Volvo Buses (source). This service is present in few buses, but is absent largely.

– Bangalore set to go Wi-Fi (2006, source)

That is, it ain’t a WiFi till it’s a WiFi.

What are your expectations from Bangalore Metro? What are the use cases to have WiFi in a public transport service?
