Share on: Share on Google+

Car wi-fiThese days, most of us expect to be connected during every step of the travel process: at the airport, in the air, at the hotel. And now, even you can even drive a WiFi car or take a bus with Wi-Fi.

GroundLink is a car service in New York that will provide free Wi-Fi connection in a handful of its vehicles. You’ll be able to connect your laptop, tablet or smartphone while you’re in the car.

On the East Coast, LimoLiner is like a business-class shuttle service between Boston and New York. The ride comes with power outlets and yes, free Internet.

Even standard bus services, like BoltBus and MegaBus, now include free Wi-Fi on board.

And of course, as vehicles are coming pre-loaded with all the bells and whistles, Internet on the road is the next big development. The new Audi A3 Cabriolet was just announced, and will feature a built-in 4G Internet connection. By 2104, GM vehicles—like Chevy and Cadillac—will also have 4G connections.

And if you want a DIY option, take a look at AutoNet Mobile. It’s a device that basically turns your car into a wireless hotspot.
