Wi-Fi coming to all RTA vehicles

(Cuyahoga County) - The Greater Cleveland Regional Transit Authority announced today that free Wi-Fi will be available on all RTA vehicles and select stations and transit centers.

Six stations and transit centers currently have Wi-Fi. Buses from the Hayden District, as well as the CSU Line, the HealthLine and Trolleys will have Wi-Fi starting in September.

interim CEO Dr. Floun'say Caver says it is expected that eight vehicles per day will come on-line, with buses from the Triskett District and Paratransit to be added later in the fall. Rail cars and Paratransit will have Wi-Fi beginning in January.

The system will also allow for better security monitoring of RTA vehicles while providing a direct link to mechanics and technicians. The new system is being made possible thanks to a $15 million federal grant.
