WiFi and Cell Service for Train Tunnels
Soon people can tool Facebook and annoy you with personal conversations on the train. Metro next week will begin work toward offering WiFi and cell service on the Red and Purple lines between Union Station and 7th, reports Curbed. A memo from Metro says the service should be up by May, with phone service in August. (That gives you eight months to buy noise-cancelling headphones.) The second phase of the project would include MacArthur Park, Wilshire/Western and Vermont/Sunset. The contractor for the project is InSite.
