The trial will install wireless technology on a route 12 bus, operating between Dulwich and Oxford Circus and on route RV1, operating between Covent Garden and Tower Hill.
Simon Reed, TfL’s head of technical services group, said:“London buses have always led the way with new technology on its network, benefiting the millions of passengers who make the most of the extensive network every day.
“Innovation is a key theme of the Year of the Bus and we have worked with our suppliers to find new and innovative ways to further improve the experience of our passengers. These trials will establish whether this technology provides genuine benefits to people on the move.”
TfL has also begun to trial two further pieces of technology in the form of an upper deck seat indicator and enhanced passenger information screens.
