Free Wi-Fi now available on all Oakville Transit buses

Tuesday, September 6, 2022

The Town of Oakville continues to expand on the number of smart city technologies offered to enhance connectivity for the community. The town is pleased to announce that free Wi-Fi is now available on all Oakville Transit buses, an important initiative implemented by the town through the Digital Oakville Plan.

The free Wi-Fi network is available on all conventional and specialized buses and is open to all customers who board with a Wi-Fi enabled device such as a smartphone, laptop computer or tablet. To connect to Oakville Transit Wi-Fi, simply go to the Wi-Fi settings on your device and select “OTPublic”. A pop-up page will appear outlining the terms and conditions for use of the free wireless network. Once connected, customers will be redirected to the Oakville Transit homepage.

Digital innovation across the town is a key priority for Oakville in advancing Council’s vision to be the most livable town in Canada. Earlier this year, the town introduced free public Wi-Fi, digital information kiosks, and real-time parking information in downtown Oakville. Additionally, free Wi-Fi access is available at 35 town locations, including Town Hall, arenas, recreation and community centres, and libraries.

The Digital Oakville Plan continues to guide the town’s efforts in our commitment to keep our community connected through digital innovation.”
