Free WiFi will soon be available at every TTC station

The TTC is quietly on the cusp of a major milestone. In the coming weeks, every single subway station will offer free WiFi.

It's been a long time coming, but BAI Canada has been steadily working away at the project since the service was introduced at Bloor and St. George stations in late 2013.

Right now, all but one station has been outfitted with WiFi technology that passengers can use for free. The odd station out is York Mills, but installation work is already underway there, and it's expected to join the other 68 stations shortly.

In this year's customer charter, the TTC promised to complete the installation of WiFi in every station by the fourth quarter, so this looks like a benchmark that'll be delivered at least a bit ahead of the official schedule.
