Free WiFi Coming To 22 More GO Stations

TORONTO, January 30, 2015 – Metrolinx is rolling out free WiFi access at 22 more GO stations starting February 2, 2015.

This follows a successful pilot program that rolled out free WiFi at 14 stations and terminals starting in spring 2013. This second phase will provide about 80 per cent of all GO customers with free Internet access across a total of 36 stations. The remaining 31 stations and terminals across the GO network will be connected during a third and final phase later this year.

"Our unprecedented public transit investments are making transit a better choice for commuters," said Steven Del Duca, Minister of Transportation. "This is further proof of our government’s commitment to making the daily commute more convenient and the quality of life better for Ontario families."

"We’re bringing free WiFi to our stations to make it even more convenient to take GO Transit," said Bruce McCuaig, President and CEO of Metrolinx. "Whether it's free Internet access while you wait, an easy-to-use mobile GO website, or service alerts delivered right to your inbox, we’re committed to giving our customers the tools they need to stay in the know."

Customers can select the network name starting with “Free WiFi at GO” from their available networks to access the service, which is provided through a partnership with GO Transit’s advertising partner, IMA Outdoor, and its sponsors.

This project is part of Metrolinx’s plan to provide residents and businesses in the Greater Toronto and Hamilton Area with convenient and customer-friendly transit. Working through its divisions – GO Transit, PRESTO, and Union Pearson Express – Metrolinx is transforming the way the region moves.
