If you commute in downtown and love using your smartphone, Calgary Transit has awesome news for you and your data plan.

Calgary Transit, with Shaw Communications Inc., announced today six new transit station locations for public WiFi all located within the downtown corridor.

“The success of public Wi-Fi at our stations at Chinook, Shaganappi Point, City Hall, Centre Street and First Street demonstrates that Calgarians find value in the service,” states Calgary Transit Director Doug Morgan in the release.

“Expanding public Wi-Fi to downtown CTrain stations is part of our Customer Commitment. It’s about investing in projects and initiatives that positively impact the customer experience.”

Since launching public WiFi in 2014, thousands of people have accessed it, with the most popular location being the City Hall CTrain Station at 36,000 users connecting to ShawGuest services each month.

“Calgarians love Wi-Fi and are using their personal devices to connect to the Internet while on-the-go more than ever before,” said Chris Kucharski, Senior Vice-President, Consumer, Shaw Communications.
