New Jersey Trains to Be Fitted with Wi-Fi Coverage

The public transport authority in the US city of New Jersey has signed a Wi-Fi coverage agreement with Cablevision for services in stations and onboard trains.

It has however taken a long time from the issuance of the original RFP in September 2010 to get to the point where they could sign the eventual contract.

The Wi-Fi access will be provided to NJ Transit customers via a dedicated, trackside Wi-Fi network at no cost to the transport authority.

“This public-private partnership will enable NJ Transit to deliver on one of the top requests from our customers — wireless internet access at stations and onboard trains,” said NJ Transit Executive Director James Weinstein.

Wi-Fi on the NJ Transit system will be implemented in phases. The initial phase will focus on outfitting major stations by the end of this year. Subsequent phases will include equipping additional train stations and ultimately rail cars by line. The project is expected to be substantially complete by the end of 2016.
