16New York– Pope Francis is on his way to New York and it is speculated to cause a gridlock of biblical proportions. The Pope will be here Thursday September 24th through Saturday September 26th, making multiple appearances throughout the city. Transit Wireless, Wi-Fi provider in the New York City subway stations, wants to help make commuting in the city as smooth as possible during the papal visit.
The massive street closings are speculated to cause major delays, so what is the best way to avoid the pope mobile and crowds that follow? The subway. The NYPD has provided the Pope’s agenda and street closings that coincide and can be found here. You can access the Pope’s schedule and other live updates while traveling below all the chaos with Transit Wireless’ underground connectivity. There will be an abundance of security and massive crowds, so be sure to give yourself extra time when traveling.
