DALLAS, Oct. 25, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- BoltBus, a bus line focused on providing exceptional service, luxury and convenience at an amazingly low price, today announced it has launched an all new free on-board entertainment system to complement the already premier on-board experience. The new system is already fully rolled out in all of the California and Pacific Northwest markets, and is currently rolling out to the rest of the BoltBus markets in the Northeast. The on-board entertainment system will be offered on the entire BoltBus fleet later this Fall.
The infotainment system allows customers to enjoy movies and television shows, play games, surf the Web, and read the latest news – all completely free and all from their own Wi-Fi enabled devices including laptops, tablets or smartphones. To ensure content remains fresh, new movies will be added each month, video channels will be updated daily and news will be delivered on the hour. Customers can see movies 90 days after theatrical release, before they're available via on-demand and DVD – the fastest delivery to market.
In an effort to advance the on-board experience, BoltBus has also improved its already free Wi-Fi experience by adding increased bandwidth along with HD-quality content delivered without reliance on an external Wi-Fi source. For customers looking to surf the Web even faster, BoltBus will offer a new premium internet option for a small fee.
"BoltBus is pleased to offer our customers an entirely different bus travel experience with the roll-out of our all new on-board entertainment system," said David Hall, general manager, BoltBus. "Commuter and leisure travelers alike will love this new addition to our modern amenities, environmentally friendly buses, affordable pricing and express daily options."
BoltBus originally launched an onboard entertainment system as a pilot program in the Pacific Northwest two years ago, making it the first to introduce a bring-your-own-device on-board entertainment experience in the U.S. intercity bus industry.
The on-board entertainment system is offered in conjunction with BoltBus' premium on-board experience including free standard Wi-Fi, power outlets, leather seats and extra legroom.
