We connect communities
Transit Wireless is locally engaged and supports communities where our customers and employees live and work. We volunteer and provide financial support to many community causes and organizations.
Response to COVID-19
In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, employees raised funds for one of our community partners – City Harvest. As a result, our team contribution resulted in over 30,000 pounds of food to help keep City Harvest’s trucks on the road and filled for our neighbors in need during this challenging global crisis.
In partnership with the Ad Council, Transit Wireless leveraged its Wi-Fi advertising platform and social media assets to launch a national PSA campaign titled #StoptheSpread to provide crucial and urgent public health messages to the public around COVID-19.
Free access to the City’s best reads
Together with New York City’s Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA) and the libraries of New York, Brooklyn, and Queens, Transit Wireless helped launch the Subway Library literacy initiative. It provided access to hundreds of free e-books, e-shorts, poetry, as well as extensive excerpts from full-length books, to enjoy across the city, powered by free Transit Wireless Wi-Fi.
Transit Wireless joined with the MTA, AT&T, NYU Center for Urban Science and Progress (CUSP), and ChallengePost to launch APP Quest 3.0, a challenge to generate the best transportation-related apps for New Yorkers riding the NYCT Subway.
For the competition, Transit Wireless deployed Bluetooth Beacon Technology in Grand Central – 42nd Street station, enabling developers to create location-based technology to provide specific train location information for riders.
Mentor NYC Youth
Transit Wireless participates in the NYC Summer Bridge, the nation’s largest youth internship program. Summer Bridge connects a diverse group of students across all five NY City boroughs with internships at technology companies. In response to COVID-19, more than 50 non-profits came together to design a virtual Summer Bridge plan for 2020, which serves over 35,000 students.
