NYC UNDERGROUND SUBWAY STATIONS GET WIFI!!!


NYC are ready to never get off your phones?! The MTA announced the 2nd expansion of wireless service in the subway.

Of the 40 stations, 11 will be in Manhattan and 29 will be in Queens, including Jackson Heights/Roosevelt Avenue Station, Jamaica Center Station, Court Square Station, 59th St Columbus Circle, 42nd Street Bryant Park Station, 34th Street Herald Square Station and Grand Central 42 Street Station.

A press release from Governor Cuomo's office says this will "[connect] a total 47 million riders monthly," adding, "The completion of Phases I and II are part of seven phases to wire all 277 underground stations by 2017, and work has already begun to bring another 39 stations online by spring 2015... Phase III of the project will include the Flushing Main Street Station in Queens, as well as stations in Lower Manhattan, West Harlem and Washington Heights. Major stations in Phase III include the Fulton Street Station, 125 Street Station and the new 34 Street 7 Station when it opens next year." New York City Transit President Carmen Bianco said, "I look forward to bringing stations in the Bronx and Brooklyn online in the near future."
