VIA Expands Wi-Fi Throughout System

VIA Metropolitan Transit in San Antonio recently made free wireless Internet service available throughout its entire fleet and all its facilities and upgraded the quality of service from 3G to 4G LTE.

VIA President/Chief Executive Officer Jeffrey Arndt called the effort “a significant step forward in connectivity for our riders. With this expansion and simultaneous upgrade to VIA’s Internet service, all of our riders will be able to take advantage of their commutes to finish work assignments, stay in touch with family and friends or simply pass the time while they ride the bus.”

Arndt noted that about half of VIA’s riders use electronic devices such as smartphones and tablets.

Previously, VIA offered Wi-Fi service on selected routes and at 11 transit centers. The connection will extend to its paratransit fleet later this year.
