It’s no surprise that the winner of the Best Wi-Fi award is also beloved by business travelers. Based on trips which passengers identified as business-related, Amtrak tied for the highest average rating. Even those who did not upgrade to Amtrak’s Business Class still appreciated the reliable Wi-Fi, spacious seats, and punctuality of Amtrak’s trains.
Barons Bus is a Midwest bus company whose modern fleet of buses with free Wi-Fi and power outlets undoubtedly contributed to the high ratings from business travelers. Barons Bus’ stellar service to cities like Chicago, Detroit, and Indianapolis makes it a favorite among business travelers, in the top spot alongside Amtrak.
