South Station Gets Free WiFi

MBTA countdown clocks at South Station. The station now has WiFi.

The MBTA is starting to get wired.

South Station will have free wireless internet beginning today,  according to a joint press release from Google, Redevelopment Ventures Corp. and the MBTA.

Google invested in the endeavor and Redevlopment Ventures Corp. is responsible for WiFi development, the press release says.

“Anything that improves our customers’ transit experience is a good thing,” MBTA General Manager Beverly Scott said in the statement. “By coupling this new initiative with the WiFi service provided on Commuter Rail trains, the MBTA is keeping its customers connected from the moment they enter South Station to the time they exit trains.”

Faster Wi-Fi Could Come to Commuter Rail, Ferry Service

MBTA commuter rail.

The MBTA wants to upgrade its wireless Internet service, but without spending precious tax dollars.

The Boston area transit system is seeking sponsorship proposals to provide upgraded wi-fi service on commuter rail cars, ferries and select commuter rail stations, according to an MBTA press statement in early March.

“The MBTA’s goal is to upgrade the current WIFI service to a system wide, state of the art standard, at no cost to the MBTA and its riders,” the statement says.

The sponsorship opportunity would provide the sponsor with marketing rights such as “signage and advertising in commuter rail stations, cars and ferry facilities; corporate presence on MBTA commuter rail system maps and schedules; control of a WIFI landing page; links on the MBTA website; and intellectual property rights,” according to the statement.

Proposal documents are available through Transit Realty Associates, a management consulting firm. read more
