Wi-Fi Delhi
We will make Wi-Fi freely available in public spaces across Delhi. Citywide Wi-Fi can help in bridging the digital divide. It will also provide an impetus to education, entrepreneurship, business, employment, and also tie in with women’s safety initiatives.
Project Updates

The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) government has launched free Wi-Fi services aboard half a dozen Delhi Transport Corporation (DTC) buses on a trial basis. Not just free internet, the buses in question, according to Transport Minister Gopal Rai were also fitted with Global Positioning System (GPS) and closed-circuit television (CCTV) cameras. Mr. Rai said that each bus chosen to be a part of the pilot project would have three CCTV cameras at the front and three at the rear while a seventh camera would be fixed next to the driver. At the launch, Mr. Rai also requested commuters to share their feedback regarding the Wi-Fi service on the said vehicles on social media through the hash-tag #aamadmiwifi in addition to an exclusive email address. “After using the Wi-Fi in the buses, we request the commuters to send their feedback via e-mail at aamadmiwifi@gmail.com or to tweet with#aamadmiwifi. Once the trial run gets completed, we will invite the companies to collaborate in the project through the tender, and by March all DTC buses will have GPS system, cameras and Wi-Fi,” Mr. Rai said.
