Wifi Bus provides real-time locations of Wifi buses to its users through its client app. For bus operators, the app allows them to broadcast their real-time locations to our users via the operator app. Our website and/or the app keeps you as up to date as possible on Sacramento Wifi buses, including scheduling and events.
Information We Collect
A. Information You Provide to Us
Registration Information. When you sign up for a Wifi Bus account, you give us your name, email address, and phone number.
User Profile Information. Filling out a profile (such as your photo or avatar) is optional, and you may share as little or as much as you want. Your name is always part of your profile.
Communications. If you contact us directly, we may receive additional information about you. For example, when you contact us through the “Contact” link on the website, we may receive your name and email address, the contents of a message or attachments that you may send to us, and other information you choose to provide.
B. Information We Collect When You Use the Wifi Bus Mobile Application
Location Information. Wifi Bus is all about locating available Wifi buses. To do this, we need to know where you are. When you open Wifi Bus on your mobile device, we receive your location. We may also collect the precise location of your device when the app is running in the foreground or background.
Your location information is necessary for things like finding the nearest Wifi bus, and automatically displaying them on your mobile device. Also, if the need ever arises, our safety team may use and share location information to help protect the safety of Wifi Bus Users or a member of the public.
Device Information. Wifi Bus receives information from Users’ devices, including IP address, web browser type, mobile operating system version, phone carrier and manufacturer, application installations, device identifiers, mobile advertising identifiers, and push notification tokens.
Usage Information. To help us understand how you use Wifi Bus and to help us improve it, we automatically receive information about your interactions with the mobile application, like the content you view, your actions within the app, and the dates and times of your visits.
Call and Text Information. Phone calls and text messages between Operators and Wifi Bus who have been connected will happen through the device’s carrier. During the registration or login process, a third-party provider will be used for sending automated one-time passwords.
User Feedback. Users may add Wifi buses to their favorites list. We may use this information to suggest other Wifi buses to our users.

How We Share the Information We Collect
A. Sharing Between Users
Sharing between users and Wifi bus operators. Users are able to see information about Wifi buses, such as names, descriptions, photos, and any information the Wifi bus operators have added to their Profiles. Users see the Operator’s real-time location as the Operator approaches their scheduled location. Operators can see which users have favorited them.
Although we help users locate Wifi buses, we do not share user’s actual phone number or other contact information with other users or the operator.
B. Sharing Between Wifi Bus and Third Parties
We may share your information with third parties in the following cases:
- While negotiating or in relation to a change of corporate control such as a restructuring, merger or sale of our assets;
- If a government authority requests information and we think disclosure is required or appropriate in order to comply with laws, regulations, or a legal process;
- With law enforcement officials, government authorities, or third parties if we think doing so is necessary to protect the rights, property, or safety of Wifi Bus or the public;
- To comply with a legal requirement or process, including but not limited to, civil and criminal subpoenas, court orders or other compulsory disclosures.
- To provide information about the use of Wifi Bus to potential business partners in aggregated or de-identified form that can’t reasonably be used to identify you; and
- Whenever you consent to the sharing.
Email Subscriptions. You can always unsubscribe from our commercial or promotional emails but we will still send you transactional and relational emails about your account use of Wifi Bus.
Text Messages. You can opt out of receiving commercial or promotional text messages. However, we will still send you transactional and relational text messages about your account use of Wifi Bus.
Push Notifications. You can opt out of receiving push notifications through your device settings. Please note that opting out of receiving push notifications may impact your use of Wifi Bus (such as receiving a notification when your favorite bus is nearby).
Wifi Bus Profile Information. Customers will always be able to see a Wifi bus’ name, description, schedule, photos, and other information provided by bus operators and Wifi Bus.
Location Information. As a Customer, if you prevent your device from sharing location information at any time through your Device’s operating system settings, you will be presented with all Wifi buses located in Sacramento, not just ones near your location. As an Operator, if you prevent your device from sharing location information, it will not be broadcasted to Customers. However, allowing location information to be shared provides the most optimal experience when using the Wifi Bus mobile application.
Data Security. We are committed to protecting the data of the Customers and Operators who use Wifi Bus. Even though we take reasonable precautions to protect your data, no security measures can be 100% secure, and we cannot guarantee the security of your data.
Children’s Privacy. Wifi Bus is not directed to children, and we don’t knowingly collect personal information from children under 13. If we find out that a child under 13 has given us personal information, we will take steps to delete that information. If you believe that a child under the age of 13 has given us personal information, please contact us.
