Bariles just talked to Mr. Olimpio Par, a senior officer of Soccksargen’s oldest transportation firm, Yellow Bus Line Inc. and confirmed something that has been on some Facebook updates for a week already – they will be offering FREE WIFI INTERNET connection on their Premiere Buses!
“This way, businessmen and and other users of wifi-enabled devices could easily access the internet to check on their email or update their status on Facebook, Twitter and other social networking sites even while on the move, ” according to an enthusiastic Mr. Par.
Currently, only Aircon Bus #4 which travels the GenSan-Koronadal-Isulan route and vice versa has been equipped with the FREE WIFI Internet connection. According to Mr. Par, they are still on the process of monitoring the performance of PLDT’s signal all throughout the trip before they roll out this service totally in June 2011.
Bariles will be personally riding YBL Aircon bus #4, one of the units of their their newest fleet this afternoon along with other bloggers to try out the wifi connection from GenSan to Koronadal themselves. For sure, they will be making a series of Speed Tests along the way.
Watch out for their update regarding the Free Wifi Internet Connection of Yellow Bus Line in a follow-up post!
But for now, we could only thank the management of Yellow Bus Line, Inc. for levelling up on their services and giving the riding public of South Central Mindanao something to look forward to each time they ride one of their Premiere aircon buses. And if this FREE-WIFI-Internet -Connection service extends to their GenSan-Davao route, guess who won’t be sleeping next time along the three-hour trip to the Durian Capital? 🙂
Our hats off to you Yellow Bus Line!
