News for Chicagoans:

MAYOR EMANUEL ANNOUNCES FIRST CHICAGO TRANSIT AUTHORITY SUBWAY SECTION NOW OFFERS CHICAGOANS 4G WIRELESS SERVICE

CTA will be the Largest Public Transit System in the U.S. with 4G Coverage in all Subway Stations and Tunnels; Targeted to be Completed by the End of 2015

Mayor Rahm Emanuel today announced the completion of the first phase of a project to bring 4G wireless coverage to the Chicago Transit Authority subway system. Upon completion of the network upgrade, which is expected by the end of 2015, the City of Chicago will be the largest city in North America to have a subway system with full 4G wireless coverage across its entire system of subway stations and tunnels.

Starting this week, CTA Blue Line O’Hare Branch riders have full 4G wireless coverage in the Kimball Subway, a 1.2-mile section serving the Logan Square and Belmont stations. Activation of 4G coverage in the remaining portions of the Blue and Red Line subways will occur in phases, with the entire subway completed by year’s end.

“The addition of 4G coverage will ensure that CTA passengers can benefit from dependable data service while riding the subway,” said Mayor Emanuel. “Importantly, it will also improve communications for first responders working inside the tunnel system. This is part of the city’s ongoing efforts to invest in 21st century technology in Chicago’s world-class transit system, and expand economic opportunity for more Chicagoans throughout the city.”
