PATH adds Sprint to complete cellphone service coverage


Port Authority-Trans Hudson's riders will now have coverage from all major U.S. cellphone service providers at PATH stations in New York and New Jersey. 

Last week, the agency added Sprint to the three other major cell service providers —Verizon, AT&T and T-Mobile — in expanding its service across all stations and platforms. 

Cell service from the other providers started in December 2018. 

The Sprint access completes the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey's effort to install cellular connections in all PATH underground stations, port authority officials said in a press release. PATH serves more than riders on weekdays and 150,000 on weekends.

Connectivity is available on platforms and throughout stations, but not while passengers are on trains in tunnels between stations.
