Free Wi-Fi in Your Car
by Wendy Perrin
Remember my trick for getting free Wi-Fi in airports by sitting right outside an airline lounge club? Well, a couple of days ago my husband figured out how to get free Wi-Fi in a car during a road trip: Drive behind a Wi-Fi-equipped bus.
On his way from San Francisco's airport to Santa Rosa, California, Tim found himself trailing an Airport Express bus that advertised "free Wi-Fi." While stopped at the many stoplights on 19th Avenue, he was able to switch his iPhone over to Wi-Fi and check his e-mail. Had I been sitting in the car next to him, I could have blogged on my laptop the entire time from SFO to Santa Rosa. Which is why I may be stalking Wi-Fi-equipped buses on future road trips. (Kidding!)
