Subway Wi-Fi service expands to 37 more underground stations in Bronx, Manhattan


NEW YORK — The MTA is announcing the expansion of subway Wi-Fi service to 21 underground stations in the Bronx and 16 additional Manhattan stations.

Officials with the MTA and technology company Transit Wireless announced the expanded service at the 161st Street-Yankee Stadium station on Thursday. It's one of the stations that now have Wi-Fi.

Wi-Fi and cellphone service were already available at dozens of stations, mainly in Manhattan. Service is scheduled to be available in all underground stations by 2017.

Gov. Andrew Cuomo says that access to high-speed Internet has become a necessity and New Yorkers "cannot afford to be blacked out while trying to get from point A to point B."
