Parvus equips UTA commuters with Internet

Posted on February 12, 2008

Utah Transit Authority (UTA) has launched a free wireless Internet service for its entire fleet of over-the-road commuter buses by equipping them with Parvus' RiderNet mobile access point technology.  


Parvus and UTA concluded a successful Wi-Fi pilot in 2007 on four of UTA's Ogden express route buses. After a public bid in November 2007, UTA awarded Parvus with a contract to provide passenger Wi-Fi equipment and installation for 60 additional buses, as well as ongoing remote system monitoring, content filtering and 1-800 user phone support services.  


UTA operates 60 express route coaches that serve approximately 5,000 passengers commuting daily to and from Davis, Weber, Salt Lake, Tooele and Utah counties.
