The Internet Bus has enjoyed good success during its previous legs and has touched the lives of more than 12,00,000 Indians across 110 towns stopping at over 1000 locations. Surveys have indicated that over 30% of our visitors have gone online for the first time after visiting the Internet Bus and over 50% of our visitors have told at least five people about the benefits of the Internet.
