Wi-Fi at Roadside Rest Stops

Project Area(s): 
Energy and Infrastructure

California Partners for Advanced Transit and Highways (PATH) evaluated a pilot project of Wi-Fi access at roadside rest stops operated by Caltrans located at the Phillip S. Raine and Enoch Christoffersen rest stops along State Route 99. The new Wi-Fi system gave users access to information regarding historical sites, traffic and safety information, and tourist information. California PATH evaluated the pilot project through interviews with other states that have implemented similar Wi-Fi programs, focus groups, surveys, and analysis of user data. The research goals were to learn about the benefits and challenges of providing Wi-Fi access at roadside rest stops, to provide Caltrans with an understanding of user needs and perceptions, and to assist Caltrans in developing a model for a statewide deployment of Wi-Fi at roadside rest stops.
