BAI Canada and the Toronto Transit Commission (TTC) have announced that free Wi-Fi is now available at Union, King, Queen, Dundas stations.
The four stations join, Bloor-Yonge, Wellesley, College, St George, and Bay stations on the list of subway stations equipped with free Wi-Fi. Users can access the free Wi-Fi hotspot by choosing “TCONNECT” on their device. Then, the user must click connect on the TCONNECT welcome page in their browser.
The TTC plans to implement the free Wi-Fi service at 18 stations, which encompasses the lower loop plus Spadina station, by the first quarter of 2015. The rollout to the 18 stations is expected to be up and running for the Toronto 2015 Pan AM Games.
Here is a list of stations for the next phase(s) of the Wi-Fi implementation with approximate completion dates:
– Spadina – December 2014
– St Andrew – January 2015
– Osgoode – January 2015
– St Patrick – February 2015
– Queen’s Park – February 2015
– Museum – March 2015
The expansion is a part of an ongoing rollout to expand wireless and cellular capabilities in Toronto’s subway system. BAI Canada first launched free Wi-Fi at Bloor-Yonge and St. George stations back in December of 2013. The goal is for BAI Canada and the TTC to bring wireless connectivity to all subway stations in the next three years.
