Motorola Solutions and wireless communications provider BAI Canada are partnering on installation of a shared Wi-Fi network at the underground subway stations of Toronto Transit Commission (TTC).

Initially, the companies will install the network at the St. George and Bloor & Yonge stations, which will cover all public areas including platforms, mezzanines, walkways and stairwells.

Motorola Solutions will use its wireless local area network (WLAN) technology to facilitate the deployment of Wi-Fi network.

"The TTC is a transportation lifeline for Toronto."

The network, which will also support cellular connectivity, will eventually cover TTC’s 65 current and planned underground subway stations. It will also offer high-speed internet connectivity, social media, e-mail and several web-based applications.

Through Motorola’s WLAN platform, transit riders can have access to real-time alerts, arrival and departure information, and transit updates from their personal wireless devices.

BAI Canada CEO Brian Jacks said: "BAI Canada and Transit Wireless selected Motorola Solutions for its depth of expertise including helping governments and enterprises deliver their best in the moments that matter. We look forward to working with Motorola to deliver its leading WLAN solution to help provide high-speed Wi-Fi connectivity for Toronto Transit Commission customers."

Motorola Solutions Canada president George Krausz said: "Motorola Solutions is eager to work with BAI Canada to launch the initial two-station network and bring much-needed Wi-Fi to the third most heavily used urban mass-transit system in North America. The TTC is a transportation lifeline for Toronto, and Motorola has the expertise to provide it with the same reliable connectivity we have demonstrated with similar major transit deployments in the United States, Asia, Europe, Middle East and elsewhere."
