DOWNTOWN — Free WiFi is now available for Blue Line riders at the Clark/Lake station.
WiFi will also be available at the Blue Line’s Washington, Monroe and Jackson stations before the end of January, according to Mayor Rahm Emanuel’s office.
Access to the network is meant to help regular riders who don’t want to use the data on their phone plans.
“Free WiFi provides our customers another option for connectivity,” said Dorval Carter Jr., president of the Chicago Transit Authority, in a news release. “This is yet another added convenience we’re offering our customers to help make taking public transit an even more appealing option.”
The perk was made possible by “connectivity upgrades” to the CTA’s subway wireless network, according to the Mayor’s Office.
