Student raises $6,000 for Wi-Fi on school buses

Posted on April 10, 2013

INDIANAPOLIS — A high school student here has raised more than $6,000 to support his goal of getting Wi-Fi installed on some of his district’s buses, WISH reports.  

If Wi-Fi units are installed on the buses, the district will then consider whether to expand the program based on the success of the pilot program.

The Metropolitan School District of Washington Township said in a statement to the news outlet that the superintendent is supportive of the idea, and administrators are working on developing guidelines and regulations for having Wi-Fi installed on the buses.

    That would be 40 minutes of pure bliss. I don't see an issue with it. Some tour and transit buses have WiFi such as Greyhound and Academy. There could be filters put up to prevent internet abuse just like they have at public WiFi hotspots. The only flaw I see with this is that each unit for each bus in the entire fleet (whatever amount of buses that is) would be expensive! Props to the districts that do install these, because we surely wouldn't mind it. :D
