If all goes well, we could soon have wireless internet connections on some MetroBuses.

Metro Transit has launched a test program to gauge how wireless internet performs on a select number of buses. The program, which will last approximately 60 days.

“Being able to access the internet while you’re on the go is an incredible resource for workers, students and anyone who wants a more enjoyable ride,” said Jessica Mefford-Miller, Executive Director of Metro Transit on the company's website. “We are excited to launch this pilot, so we can determine the feasibility of adding WiFi to our transit system. This is part of our commitment to introduce new technology and amenities to Metro Transit so that we can continue to provide our customers with the best possible transit experience.”

If a passenger is on board a bus that is part of the pilot program, the WiFi-enabled can be accessed by selecting the network option on your mobile device and choosing Metro Wi-Fi. From there, you will be prompted to enter your first and last name, email address and accept terms of use before connecting. There is no cost to use the WiFi during this pilot phase.

Riders can provide their feedback by texting Metro Customer Service at 314-207-9786, Monday through Friday from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m.
