Riders on express buses operated by Plymouth Metrolink now have access to free high-speed Wi-Fi.
The agency said all 32 of its express buses offer the service at no cost to riders. It came about due to a partnership with SouthWest Transit, said Plymouth Administrative Services Director Luke Fischer.
“Through our partnership, we were able to obtain Wi-Fi routers at no cost, making it a very cost-effective option,” he said.
The integration of transit and technology has been a primary focus for Metrolink, a news release said. Wi-Fi availability comes just months after Plymouth Metrolink launched a free mobile app, which features real-time bus tracking, a route planner and push notifications of rider alerts.
“Metrolink is a system of choice in the metro area,” Fischer said. “High quality customer service, advanced features and reliability are the primary reasons people use Plymouth Metrolink.”
Metrolink offers express commuter and reverse commuter service between Plymouth and downtown Minneapolis. It also has local service to major Plymouth business centers among its 11 routes.
