Wireless Internet Concept: Mass Transit As Mobile Wireless Net Hubs


Hello All,

Rifling through my old notebooks I discovered this original concept I wrote back in December 2002. Regarding the usage of free wireless Internet offered by a local municipality via its local transit authority.



The idea would go like this where the city transit system would furnish city buses / shuttles with a cellular package. This would be placed on the roof of the vehicle as an antenna where additional equipment is stored in some outside the reach panels. Be it on the floor or rear segment of a mass transit vehicle that it is "out of sight and out of mind" from being vandalized.

Now for those bus stations where numerous passengers transfer to a different route. The cellular server farms can be kept with some IT staff as needed for maintenance and inspections of quality of service. Also, the "sheltered bus stops" can have a fixed array on its roof. Where each passing city bus or shuttle can link up to it as a node and boost its cellular signal into a community. Of course, a security camera can be placed on the sheltered bus stop so as to avoid unauthorized tampering or vandalism. The security cameras can be an extension of the local law enforcement in community policing. Much like in modern cities in Europe (IE London in CCTV) or elsewhere in modern American cities across the nation.

An added twist at the Bus transfer stations or the sheltered bus stops. To replace the 20th-century poster advertisements with 21st century Organic LCD's that are paper thin. Where under a shatter proof and scratch-resistant Plexiglas the video advertisements can be situated throughout a bus station or sheltered bus stop.

The benefit for the mass transit authority is additional advertising revenue. For supporting such a cellular mobile network of wireless Internet connectivity for its citizens. Including if an "Amber Alert" or other emergency alert needs to be broadcast. Such as a "Weather Alert" like here in Florida during Hurricane season or other freak storms or "Traffic Alerts". Such an Organic LCD display system rolled out over the mass transit network grid of bus stations or sheltered bus stops. Would aid the local municipal government in such media alerts as needed. Perhaps even to be utilized by local Police Stations to circulate in a 21st-century manner the "Wanted" criminal posters. (such as "Crime Stoppers")

This is a win / win / win situation for the local citizens, mass transit authority, and the local law enforcement for community development.
