KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) -- Some of the North Kansas City school buses that are outfitted for longer trips will also soon be wired with Wi-Fi access.
The district will begin wiring four school buses used for longer trips with industrial grade Wi-Fi in January. The Kansas City Star reports (http://bit.ly/TjIbte ) that the service will be available on buses used for trips such as those taken by band members and sports teams.
The cost is about $700 per bus for the equipment and $50 in monthly Internet access charges.
The first use will be by students who make the 50-minute round trip daily to a career center in Platte County.
