LAKEWOOD, Wash. — Pierce Transit’s efforts to upgrade its camera security system will lead to the system making Wi-Fi available to its passengers on all 140 of its fixed-route buses by the end of the year, The News Tribune reports.
The most recent outlay, which the Pierce Transit board of directors approved earlier this month, will buy new routers that will improve that system.

The new system will allow first responders the ability to log into a bus from anywhere there is cellular coverage. For the full story, click here.
