Phasing out Wi-Fi on ST Express buses
As part of a pilot project Sound Transit equipped 34 of its ST Express buses with Wi-Fi ability. Since the start of pilot project, many of the Wi-Fi equipped buses have been retired and replaced with newer, more fuel-efficient buses.
Sound Transit concluded it is not cost-effective to maintain the pilot program on its buses for three reasons: The Wi-Fi systems on the Sound Transit buses are now too outdated to find parts for replacement; use is low; and the expense required to put new Wi-Fi equipment on the new buses is prohibitively high.
We are sorry bus riders who enjoyed this free access will no longer be able to use Sound Transit Wi-Fi. Sound Transit is committed to delivering a premium commute experience for our riders. The agency is currently looking at all of our rider technologies and putting together a plan for future improvements that are a better fit with rapidly developing wireless technology.
