On Friday, April 25, 2014, the Golden Gate Bridge, Highway and Transportation District (District) Board of Directors approved the award of a contract to Premier Wireless Solutions for wireless internet service onboard Golden Gate Transit buses. Read the related staff report HERE.

The District has worked for years to provide robust wireless access to its bus riders. Following several unsuccessful attempts due to the unique characteristics of its service area, the District evaluated several new solutions and equipment vendors used by other Bay Area bus operators, including AC Transit, VTA, Capital Rail Corridor, Google, Genetech, and Sonoma County Airport Express. Through this comprehensive research and testing, the District determined that Premier Wireless Solutions provided the most comprehensive and reliable solution.

The District plans to launch the new wireless service on its Golden Gate Transit buses in about two months.
