Transport for London (TfL) has started a trial of free Wi-Fi on two buses operating in the city. The trial will see Wi-Fi technology installed on a route 12 bus, operating between Dulwich and Oxford Circus, and a route RV1 bus, which operates between Covent Garden and Tower Hill. If successful, TfL hopes to find sponsors to help roll out the technology to other buses.
