New York City subway riders will soon have access to Wi-Fi and cellphone service as part of a plan to upgrade an aging transit system that serves 9 million people daily.
Gov. Andrew Cuomo detailed the improvements Friday, saying the five-year, $29 billion plan will restore New York’s legacy of building big for future generations.
The plan includes subway station countdown clocks, improved signal technology and replacement subway cars. Thirty stations will be completely overhauled.
