Our Story

Transit Wireless has an exclusive contract with the Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA) and New York City Transit Authority (NYCT) to finance, design and build a 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 tax payers.

In 2011, Transit Wireless connected the first six stations in the Chelsea neighborhood of Manhattan.  From there, the project expanded throughout Manhattan, Queens, the Bronx, and Brooklyn.  The project was completed in December 2016, two years ahead of the original time frame. All stations in the New York City underground subway station now have Wi-Fi connectivity as well as cellular connectivity on AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile and Verizon networks.

Transit Wireless WiFi™ is the free public Wi-Fi network operated by Transit Wireless within connected underground New York City subway stations. Sponsorship, advertising and promotional partnership opportunities are available on the Wi-Fi network.
