The light rail network in Pittsburg is getting Wi-Fi connections as a result of a recent agreement between the Port Authority of Allegheny County and Comcast.
Light rail passengers will be able to go online from their smart phones or other electronic devices.
The agency said the project comes at not cost to it. Comcast currently provides Wi-Fi service for transit users in Philadelphia, Boston and southern New Jersey.
“We’re excited to be able to provide this amenity to our riders,” said Port Authority Chief Executive Officer Ellen McLean. “This is yet another step in our ongoing effort to enhance the public transit experience, and will be invaluable once we roll out real-time tracking on our light rail vehicles.”
