- Overview of what the product is

Bustle is an onboard, free entertainment system which is streamed straight to the passengers personal device. It runs through Arriva's on-board Wifi and is completely free to use. As the content is carried on the bus it’s not affected by areas of poor reception and all passengers have to go through the portal in order to connect to the internet via WiFi.

The portal hosts a whole range of great content including audiobooks, podcasts, e-Book, magazines and games! These are refreshed on a monthly basis. In terms of the user flow:

Simply hop on-board, connect to the Wifi, or type bustlewifi.com into your browser if you’re already connected.
