MCLEAN, Va. — United Bus Technology (UBT) has launched its flagship product NetBox to provide onboard Wi-Fi and entertainment to benefit both bus operators and travelers.
NetBox, one of the most affordable all-in-one platforms, was developed by UBT with cutting-edge technologies for the motorcoach industry. It provides high-speed Internet connection with MegaWifi, a movie-streaming system with OnCoach Cinema, and GPS-based fleet management solution MegaTrac.
“Compared to airlines, the technology used in the motorcoach industry is severely behind, resulting in a sub-par experience for bus operators and passengers,” said Tony Wei, UBT’ s CEO. “UBT’ s goal is to provide innovative, yet affordable, IT solutions to bus operators and to revamp the coach travel experience for their passengers.”
Eastern Bus CEO David Wong said previous Wi-Fi services the company tried “failed tremendously and disappointed our passengers.
”“We installed NetBox on all our coaches and now our passengers enjoy uninterrupted high-speed MegaWiFi with no complaints, and they are ‘ wowed’ with OnCoach Cinema,” Wong said. “Most importantly, NetBox really works, and we generate more sales because of it.”
In addition to NetBox, UBT provides many other customer-tailored services for bus lines, including eLog, IFTA reporting, cloud-based ticketing and reservations, and onsite passenger check-in.
“I am very encouraged to learn that an IT company like UBT is devoting all their resources to develop affordable IT solutions to help improve operational efficiency and enhance the motorcoach passengers experience,” said Ken Presley, vice president of industry relations and COO of the United Motorcoach Association.
