Mobile device users may soon be able to get free wifi on much of the TransLink system.

Free wifi coming to more of transit system: TransLink

Plug-in stations to power devices, internet access planned to improve rider experience

TransLink is aiming to add free wifi internet access to much of the transit system, but officials aren’t yet revealing many details.

Free wifi has already been made available at both SeaBus terminals and acting CEO Cathy McLay said more is on the way.

TransLink has previously been testing wifi internet for bus passengers on certain routes, such as the 555 from Langley to Braid Station, and more buses, SkyTrain and potentially West Coast Express could be added as part of the pending rollout.

“Stay tuned,” McLay said. “We’ll also be offering things like plug-in stations so you can actually power your devices on the system.”

McLay said the move reflects a broader TransLink strategy to improve the customer experience on transit.
