WiFi - give yourself some time back
Being on the road shouldn’t mean being out of touch. Or bored. Or behind.
With free WiFi on board most of our buses, you can make the most of your journey and have a blast online without eating in to your data.

get the most from our free WiFi
Even though our WiFi is completely free, it does have a daily cap. But don’t worry, it's more than enough to keep up to speed on social media, watch a few epic fail videos on YouTube or even, if you must, catch up with your work emails.
See our FAQs below for more help and advice with our caps.
What are the caps?
Every day you'll have 100MB of free WiFi data to use on each of our brands. So for example, if you get on an indigo you'll have 100MB to use, if you then hopped on a red arrow in the same day you'll have an additional 100MB of WiFi data. Remember the brands refered to not in bold will have an allowance of 70MB per day per brand.
I've hit my cap, now what?
Don't worry, our caps reset at midnight every day so you'll be able to connect as normal the following day.
How can I avoid hitting the cap?
If you stream videos, make sure you set it to stream in a lower quality, on a mobile device you probably won't notice the difference in quality using 480p or 720p compared to HD but you're data allowence will go much further.
Avoid downloading or streaming high quality music.
Set apps to not auto download, on some devices they start by default updating over WiFi as soon as they join (you will still be notified when there is an update available).
Avoid having too many apps open, especially data eating ones. Sometimes they can use your data even in the background.
