Riders on MARTA buses and trains can now log on to free wireless internet during their trip.
“The Metropolitan Atlanta Rapid Transit Authority (MARTA) now has free Wi-Fi on all buses and trains,” MARTA announced. “The new connection allows riders to browse the web, send e-mails, read e-books, and connect to social media sites such as Facebook and Twitter.”
To log on, here’s what you need to do:
– Go to your Wi-Fi settings and select the network name based on your rail car number or bus (e.g.
– MARTA_Rail_Guest_673 or MARTA_Bus_Guest).
– Review and accept the terms and conditions to connect to the internet.
– If you move from one mode or transportation or from one railcar to another, you will need to re-open your settings and select the proper Wi-Fi network.
“Wi-Fi Lite relies on cellular-based technology and speeds will vary throughout the route,” the spokesperson for MARTA added. “Downloading large files or streaming video is prohibited due to limited bandwidth. MARTA is expanding Wi-Fi and cellular services to include all 38 rail stations. Installation has been completed at Five Points, Peachtree Center, and Dome Stations. MARTA Mobility vehicles will have access by mid-year. As with any Wi-Fi source, our riders are asked to be cautious about transactions performed and information they choose to share.”
