Ontario Introducing Free Wi-Fi on GO Transit in 2020; Future of HSR Wi-Fi

Today, it was announced that free Wi-Fi is coming to GO buses and trains next year.

Metrolinx has signed an agreement with Icomera Canada Inc. to connect all 1,475 GO buses and trains to Wi-Fi beginning in 2020.

Beginning spring 2020, commuters on a GO bus or train will be able to stay connected with their mobile devices with a free, reliable, high-quality, wireless internet connection.

“More and more people depend on their phones to be able to work, study and keep in touch with friends and family during their daily commute,” said MPP Gill. “Bringing Wi-Fi to GO trains and buses will make traveling by GO a better, more convenient experience for people in Milton.”

The City of Hamilton announced today that they are beginning a new pilot project. The first week of October, the HSR will be conducting a two-month pilot project that will see free Wi-Fi provided on 15 buses, operating on various routes across the city.

Buses will be clearly marked with a Wi-Fi symbol beside the front door and on the destination sign. The inside of the bus will include information posted in the “Take One” slots near the driver explaining how to access the Wi-Fi.

Similar to other areas where the City of Hamilton offers free Wi-Fi, customers will need to accept the Terms and Conditions in order to access Wi-Fi on our buses.
