South Bend Schools deploy free Wi-Fi buses throughout city for students and public

South Bend Schools has opened its free bus Wi-Fi to students and the general public.

The school corporation announced last week that it was suspending classes and moving to e-learning to combat the potential spread of coronavirus. Yesterday was the first day of the virtual classes.

To ensure that students throughout the district have internet access, South Bend Schools is distributing Wi-Fi enabled buses throughout the city. The buses will act as Wi-Fi hotspots.

The free hotspots are also open to the public. Users should prioritize the e-learning needs of students and avoid data-intensive apps, but web browsing is okay. The Wi-Fi is SBCSC-Bus-Public. No password is needed to access the network.

The Wi-Fi bus locations will alternate every day throughout South Bend. The hours will be from 10 AM until 6 PM Monday through Saturday. Click here for more details.
