Miami-Dade adds free wireless service

Posted on March 2, 2011

This week, Miami-Dade Transit launched free wireless service on all Metrorail and Metromover cars as well as on select Metrobus routes. The countywide launch is an expansion of Mayor Carlos Alvarez' Wireless Miami-Dade Initiative, which brought free wireless service to Goulds, Tamiami and Tropical parks.

By expanding free wireless accessibility on Metrorail and Metromover, and some of the county's most popular express commuter bus routes, Mayor Alvarez said transit riders can enjoy a better transit experience, which could equate to fewer cars on the road and a more sustainable community.

"That's what government's core mission is all about, providing services and programs that make a difference in someone's life," said Mayor Alvarez. "Embracing technology is just one more way Miami-Dade is investing in its residents, visitors and businesses. It's about investing in our community, in big and small ways."

In the near future, the county plans to expand free wireless service to Amelia Earhart Park, all 22 Metrorail Stations and other county facilities.
