Downtown SkyTrain go wireless

Aug 19, 2016

Transit passengers traveling on SkyTrain’s Dunsmuir tunnel in downtown Vancouver, the underground span for the Expo and Millennium lines, can now use their smartphone’s wireless connection.

As of yesterday, wireless infrastructure installed inside the tunnel allows customers with Rogers to go online, make and receive calls, send and receive emails and text messages, and stay connected during emergencies.

The infrastructure covers the 1.4-kilometre-long tunnel span of four stations – Stadium-Chinatown, Granville, Burrard, and Waterfront – and the tracks between them, accounting for approximately six minutes of travel time in each direction.  Read more on Daily Hive.
