It is rolling through the country until August 13. The bus is equipped with several monitors where visitors can select which of 10 Olympic streams to watch.
It's part of a big marketing effort by the Google to distribute major live events in India which recently have included the French Open and the Indian Premiere League. More on the YouTube bus published in the Indian publication B2C.
