The next time you’re at any of these 33 MRT Stations, turn on your Wi-Fi to save on mobile data costs. The WiFi connectivity trial, which was made available by the Land Transport Authority (LTA) in August last year, has seen about 700,000 logins each day since its inception. It’s easy to spot a WiFi-connect station – just look around the platforms for the posters and decals. LTA hopes to expand the free WiFi service progressive to all MRT and LRT station platforms, and 30 bus interchanges and terminals.
Mrs Rosina Howe-Teo, Group Director for Innovation and InfoComm Technology (LTA) said, “Enabling the first 33 stations with the free WiFi service is part of our programme to provide wireless coverage on our public transport network. This enhances the commuting experience by providing an ‘always connected’ journey for commuters who need to check their emails or read the news during their commutes.”
