Thousands of people have been taking advantage of the free Wi-Fi installed on Northern Territory buses, another advantage for those who own real estate in Darwin.
According to minister for transport Adam Giles, almost 9,000 people have logged onto the free Wi-Fi system, which started in the Darwin area in February before extending to Alice Springs in March.
Bus interchanges at Darwin, Casuarina and Palmerston are also hooked up to the Wi-Fi system, which allows travellers to use 90 minutes or 100MB of free internet each day.
With the Wi-Fi system in place, travellers can easily kill some time by catching up on emails, reading the news or checking out what's happening on social media.
"This project is about building a modern, convenient public transport system and it has been hugely popular with travellers," Mr Giles said in a June 20 statement.
"We've spent $10,000 connecting each bus and it has been worth every cent. I am looking forward to rolling-out Wi-Fi on more buses across the Darwin network."
The Wi-Fi access on Territory buses could have a positive impact on those with property in Darwin as it encourages more use of the city's public transport – potentially saving on petrol money and reducing the cost of living for residents.
