STOCKHOLM -- Moovera Networks, a leading developer of fixed and mobile wireless communications systems, today announced that Swebus Express AB – the dominant long-distance express bus service in Sweden – has selected the award-winning Moovbox M Series Mobile Broadband Gateway to deliver Internet connectivity on its fleet of over eighty buses that serve over two million passengers each year. The mobile Wi-Fi hotspot deployment, which is the largest of its kind in Scandinavia, will include routes with stops throughout southern and central Sweden as well as neighboring Norway and Denmark. Swebus Express, a subsidiary of Concordia Bus Nordic AB, will also utilize the Moovbox to connect ticket machines on each bus to the Internet, and provide GPS-based fleet location monitoring.

"Increased competition in the public transport sector has led Swebus to examine ways in which we can differentiate ourselves from other operators," said Joakim Palmkvist, Managing Director of Swebus Express. "Providing Internet connectivity to our entire fleet introduces a technology platform on which we can build new and innovative services that not only benefit our passengers but also improve the way our fleet operates. We chose the Moovbox from Moovera primarily as it offered the widest range of features at the most cost-effective price point."
