Wifi on bus stop?

Saw this at a bus stop today in NUS.
That's a Cisco (formerly Linksys) wireless router right?

Why is it fix at the bus stop? There's even a big chain too.

little red bus,
ok, it looks silly. LOL.

No, I was just passing by and left when the bus I was going to take came.

At the bus stop in front of Computer Centre in NUS.

they are trying out a new system that will track the location (hence the arrival time) of NUS internal shuttle buses using the existing wireless network in NUS. A very brilliant idea. Not silly at all!

NUS student,

The accuracy is very doubtful. Most of the time it says >15 mins.

Most probably, most buses are not fitted with the device or bus drivers turn off the device in their buses. :-)

But it's a good experiment though.
