Ed. Note: Metro also announced today special late-night service New Year’s Eve: “special late-night rail service until 2 a.m. on New Year’s Eve, three hours later than normal Sunday closing hours, to provide customers a safe transportation alternative. In addition, there will be no scheduled maintenance on New Year’s Eve after 6 p.m. or on New Year’s Day.”
“Metro today announced the availability of free customer Wi-Fi service at 24 additional underground stations, dramatically expanding the number of Wi-Fi enabled stations to 30.
Metro first began offering customer Wi-Fi at six stations in April: Metro Center, Gallery Place, L’Enfant Plaza, Judiciary Square, Union Station and Archives.
Starting today, Wi-Fi is available at the following additional stations:
Mt Vernon Sq
All remaining underground stations will have Wi-Fi by mid-2018.
Metro’s Wi-Fi amenity supplements existing cellular service, which is already available at all Metro stations.
Wireless voice and data service is also available in underground tunnel segments on the Red Line from Glenmont to Silver Spring and on the Orange, Silver and Blue lines from Metro Center to Stadium-Armory.
Work is underway to provide full cell service in all tunnel segments.“
