St. Lucie County Adds Free Wi-Fi to Treasure Coast Connector Route One Buses

Post Date:01/31/2017 8:15 AM

Riders traveling on The Treasure Coast Connector’s Route One now have free Wi-Fi access, thanks to a pilot program launched by St. Lucie County’s Transit Division.

By contracting with the education broadband company, Kajett, St. Lucie County is able to provide free internet access to its busiest community transit route, Route One, which runs along U.S. 1 from Fort Pierce to Port St. Lucie.

“We hope by offering this service we will enhance the ridership experience on our Route One buses, attract new bus transit patrons and to provide a bus environment that accentuates the advantage of increased personal productivity when travelers do not have to operate their own vehicles,” explained St. Lucie County Transportation Planner David Engel, MCRP.

This one-year pilot program allows the county to monitor the Wi-Fi usage to see if the demand is there to expand it to additional bus routes in the future. St. Lucie County is also currently investigating the possibility of providing free internet access to the Fort Pierce and Port St. Lucie Intermodals, as well as the busier bus stops where shelters are located. 

Filters has been installed on the buses to control the types of permissible downloads based upon data usage and content. The bus Wi-Fi filters are defaulted to what would be age appropriate for K-12 school students.

St. Lucie County’s Community Services Department works in close partnership with the St. Lucie County Council on Aging to operate the Treasure Coast Connector – St. Lucie County’s public transportation system.
