Some Metro Vancouver residents will soon be able to stream while they sit on the bus, as TransLink partners with Shaw Communications to introduce free WiFi on some routes.
WiFi will be free for riders on six RapidBuses and three SkyTrains, at Edmonds Station in Burnaby and at Carvolth Exchange in Langley.
TransLinks says this part of their plans for a system-wide roll out that expected to be complete in 2026.
The roll out will start with RapidBuses, SkyTrains, and 60-foot articulated buses first.
WiFi was supposed to be available on transit vehicles starting in 2020, but its introduction was delayed due to the pandemic. The service is being fully funded by Shaw.
Posters will be on transit vehicles that are equipped with free WiFi.
