WASHINGTON HEIGHTS — Uptown straphangers can now connect to more than the subway at several local train stations.
Free Transit Wi-Fi is now available at five A train stations in Washington Height and Inwood, including the 175th Street, 181st Street, 190th Street, Dyckman Street and 207th Street stations
The Wi-Fi was installed as part of the third phase of a project to wire all 277 underground subway stations with Internet service by 2017.
The first 36 underground stations to be connected in 2013 were in Midtown Manhattan.
In October 2014, the MTA and Transit Wireless expanded the program to 11 more Manhattan stations, as well as 29 underground stops in Queens.
At the time, the agency announced that work had already begun to connect 39 more stations by spring of 2015, including stations in Washington Heights and West Harlem.
It was not clear which other Uptown stations may receive similar treatment soon.
"We’ll have more to say in the near future," said MTA spokesman Kevin Ortiz.
