Is having TV screens on public transportation such a great thing? I live in a small city (125,000 inhabitants) and almost every bus has LCD screens inside (broadcasting cultural programs, municipal information and so on).

"Bussi TV" broadcasts, without voice, news, adverts, quizs, and social and culture programs at Donostia-San Sebastian (Basque Country) public buses.

Some of the double decker buses in London have television screens inside. However, they seem to broadcast CCTV images of the interior most of the time, although they do show other useful news items as well.

Notice the screen on the top deck :



4 out of 5 buses now have CCTV :

Hong Kong's Roadshow
Most of KMB's buses are equipped with televisions that broadcast a wide variety of programs. KMB is Hong Kong's largest bus operator and runs routes mainly in Kowloon and in the New Territories and operates the TV business under the label Roadshow. NWFB, which operates primarily on Hong Kong Island, has also equipped a large number of its buses with televisions.

1. What are the operating hours of RoadShow MMOB?
RoadShow telecasts a 1-hour programme 16 times per day.

2. What kind of programmes does RoadShow telecast in the buses every day?
RoadShow has a variety of entertaining programmes, including infotainment, financial programmes, drama, Music TV, children's programmes, news, community service, lifestyle, travel, science, adventure, and many more.

3. What languages do the programmes feature?
Most of the programmes in RoadShow are in Cantonese with Chinese language subtitles. There are also some international English and Putonghua programmes available for passengers.

4. Which buses have the RoadShow MMOB service and how can I identify them?
Most of the air-conditioned double deck KMB and Citybus buses are equipped with the RoadShow MMOB service. A sticker with the RoadShow logo is displayed on the windshield of these buses to help passengers identify them. There are already more than 2,400 RoadShow MMOB buses operating throughout Hong Kong, Kowloon and the New Territories.

5. Is KMB the only bus company providing the RoadShow MMOB service?
The RoadShow MMOB service is telecast on more than 2,400 KMB and Citybus buses, as well as on 200 public light buses.

6. Where can I find out more about the future development of the RoadShow MMOB service?
We plan to expand the service to other public transit vehicle services. In the very near future, we will be using the computerised Global Positioning Bus Tracking System (GPS) to telecast our programming. By providing location-specific broadcasting, GPS provides the best service for our advertisers and passengers.

And what is the CCTV-s advantage if no one security responsible is watching the TV?

OK, you can ring to the police if you watch something strange in the bus, but I think it's a no-real security feeling.

Maybe I'm wrong, I don't know...

I think the objective is to have the passengers see what's happening, so in case something bad does happen, the TVs will show it and passengers will turn around and locate the criminal. It will also be a deterrent to would-be criminals knowing that they are being constantly watched.

The driver does have a mirror from his seat to see the whole top deck. Some buses are even equipped with webcams that connect directly to a TV screen by the driver's seat.

Plans have just been announced (this week) for passengers to be able to use mobile phones on all of the London Underground - even the deep level stations and trains.

And, at the same time they will install wireless internet and mobile tv feeds.

Apparently as many as 70 companies have expressed an interest in winning the contract to install the technology!

(OK on the "above ground" part of the system you can already use mobile phones - I sometimes use mine!)

I'd prefer a train or bus without a TV - the new trains here run in total silence and I think the free newspapers that they hand out around train stations and street corners are fine for providing news.
