Roll-Out of Wifi at MRT Stations Begins

News Releases 11 Aug 2014 Wireless@SG wi-fi

           As part of the Land Transport Masterplan 2013 initiatives to provide better service on the public transport network, free WiFi access will be made available at 28 MRT station platforms on the North East Line and stations with high commuter usage, enabling commuters to stay connected wirelessly as they wait for trains.

2.        From 22 August 2014, commuters at City Hall, Orchard and Raffles Place MRT stations will be the first to enjoy free WiFi connection at the stations’ platform level.  WiFi access at the remaining station platforms will be progressively rolled out over the next nine months.  Commuters can recognise WiFi connected platforms by the posters and decals (Annex A) at these stations.

3.        Mr Chew Hock Yong, Chief Executive of the Land Transport Authority said: “The introduction of Wireless@SG at the platforms of all North East Line stations and 12[1] other stations with high commuter volume is aimed at enhancing wireless connectivity for commuters.  They can now check their emails, surf the web, or connect to social media platforms on their phones and tablets more speedily while they wait for the train.”
