TTC unveils Wi-Fi installation plans at all subway stations


BAI Canada and the TTC have expanded past Bloor-Yonge and St. George subway stations, going live with WiFi connectivity at Bay Station. In addition, as previously reported, installations have already started at Wellesley, College, Dundas and Union stations, with an additional 18 stations on the lower loop and Spadina stations planned to rollout “by the first quarter of 2015.”

The TConnect network has been accessed by more than 200,000 unique users more than 1.5 million times since launching December 2013. “Thousands of riders are logging on and using TCONNECT, which provides connectivity for the internet, social media and email, as well as access to real-time alerts and transit updates,” said Andy Byford, TTC CEO. “We look forward to expanding the reach of that underground wireless experience throughout our multi-year agreement with BAI Canada, helping to modernize the network that moves Toronto.”

  • Wellesley – September 2014
  • College – September 2014
  • Union – October 2014
