Transit Wireless designs, builds, finances, operates, and maintains wireless communications infrastructure to connect people, bring value to communities, and advance the economies for smart cities. “Transit Wireless is a neutral host distributed antenna system (DAS) and Wi-Fi network provider. Our robust IP network allows other entities and providers to access this network, bringing seamless underground connectivity to commuters,” says Melinda. The company operates in a public-private partnership model to foster wider network connectivity without impacting the taxpayer’s money and assumes all the responsibilities to ensure that it operates or performs at the expected level. Transit Wireless aggregates anonymous data from Wi-Fi network usage to understand traffic patterns, thereby empowering the transit authority, city, businesses, or brands to address the public demands through personalized services. In addition, Transit Wireless also monetizes its network and shares a portion of the generated revenue back to the transit operator.
Piggybacking on its advanced cellular, Wi-Fi, and fiber technology solutions, Transit Wireless has secured a 27-year contract with the MTA to build and operate a multi-application high-speed communications infrastructure supporting consumer connectivity, business connectivity, transit, and public safety communications needs. Under this contract, the company implemented a high quality, highly resilient infrastructure for secure private networks, public safety communications, emergency 911, public WiFi, cellular, and broadband wireless access across the entire subway system, as per NYCT’s specifications.
Unlike many of its competitors who build the network and hand over the operation piece to other organizations, Transit Wireless serves as a valuable partner to its customers and takes care of everything—from design all the way through maintenance—to deliver a carrier grade level of operations for the Transit Authority. Alongside this, the performance-driven and highly experienced team at Transit Wireless proactively takes care of the network to drive awareness and bolster the overall experience of the end-users. Equally unique is the ardent levels of attention, responsibility, and accountability the company displays in order to ensure the safety, network and data security for its customers’ networks.

Drawing on its expertise in design, build and maintenance of secured network infrastructure in the NYCT subway, Transit Wireless continues to adopt the latest technological developments for continuous improvement of its systems and meet the growing demands of subway riders. The company also looks forward to developing and designing more innovative solutions to stay at the forefront of the network infrastructure design arena for transit operations.
