Hansa Buss has a new line of coaches with WiFi on board. With a $40 one-way ticket, passengers can connect to the Internet during the full five-hour travel from Tallinn, Estonia, to Riga, Latvia.
Prior to launching the line on March 1, Hansa board member Taivo Puuorg sought the advice of Veljo Haamer. The Estonian Wi-Fi pioneer flew to California last summer to understand the technology behind the Wi-Fi equipped Altamont Commuter Express train that journeys between Stockton, California and San Jose, California thrice a day. Haamer is now looking at deploying Wi-Fi in a six-hour train trip between the Estonian capital and St. Petersburg, and plans to study how the same technology can be installed in sea ferries linking Tallinn with Helsinki, Finland.
