MetroTransit Bus WiFi First Impressions

With WiFi being tested on select MetroTransit buses, we recently sat down for a conversation with a transit rider on a crowded 6 bus as it traveled south on Hennepin Avenue.

Bus Guy:
Am currently on wifi on a bus

Wedge LIVE: 
are you in space???????? [rocket emoji]

BG: 
Feels like it!
Bus wifi would be pretty sweet if it were on all busses.

WL:
is it busses or buses?

BG:
I go with busses.

WL:
people are going to start tailgating buses just to steal wifi

BG:
On the other hand it’s a 6 and it’s packed
Think of the traffic repercussions
#BanBusWiFi

WL:
you’ll have to look up from your phone while you’re driving to keep track of those sweet wifi-emitting buses. oh, the humanity!

BG:
I’m only staring at the screen so I don’t have to look at anyone because there is nowhere to look.
It’s either people’s faces or their butts.

WL:
is it butts or buttses?
i feel like this conversation needs to go on wedgelive.com as “interview with a man using wifi on the bus”

BG:
I wish to remain anonymous.
Some dude in white shorts and sunglasses keeps giving me the eyes.
