SEPTA to add free WiFi at more rail stations


The Southeastern Pennsylvania Transportation Authority (SEPTA) is expanding free Xfinity WiFi service to stations throughout its system, agency officials announced yesterday.

The WiFi service expansion builds on a partnership between SEPTA and Comcast, which began with the launch of Xfinity WiFi at regional rail stations, including Market East, Suburban, 30th Street, Temple University and University City, SEPTA officials said in a press release

SEPTA will be one of the first transportation agencies in the nation to provide WiFi at its transit stations, they added.

"This is another step in the ongoing effort to enhance the customer experience," said SEPTA General Manager Joseph Casey.

Over the next two years, hot spots will be added at all stations on the Market-Frankford and Broad Street lines, and at several additional locations on the Norristown High-Speed Line. In addition, service will be expanded to stations along Regional Rail, including at Airport Line terminals.
