Transit Wireless was created in 2005 to develop a response to a request by the NYC Transit Authority to develop a system for delivering wireless connectivity into the 100 year-old subway system. We now boast an exclusive contract with the Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA) and New York City Transit Authority (NYCT) for the financing, design and build of a custom, neutral host distributed antenna system (DAS) network and a Wi-Fi network in the underground stations of the New York City subway system. This is a unique public-private partnership that is being financed entirely by Transit Wireless, not requiring any funding from the transit authority, subway riders, or taxpayers.
The project was completed in December 2016, two years ahead of the original time frame. Now, Transit Wireless plans ahead for new technological developments to continuously improve the system, develops and designs solutions with our majority shareholder BAI Communications and our international sister companies, and is at the forefront of wireless connectivity network infrastructure design for transit systems.
