RTC EO Purushotham announcing the plans said that the Wi-Fi facility would be provided in AC buses and Metro Deluxe buses. The RTC will provide 30 minutes free Wi-Fi facility and tariff will be applicable post that. The RTC has tied up with 'Go Rural India' to provide these services.
A trial run will be made on the buses that run between Jubilee Bus Station and Shamshabad airport and Uppal and Waverock. Based on the results from these two routes, the services will be enabled on other AC buses. The services will also be extended to the Metro Deluxe and Metro Express buses in future.
