This is good news! DCist reports that WMATA is adding wifi to all underground Metro stations starting in summer 2017 and finishing in 2018. So far 6 stations already have it: Metro Center, Gallery Place, Judiciary Square, Union Station, Archives and L’Enfant Plaza.
Pretty good news, especially as waits will get longer as the Green line portion of SafeTrack begins in April. That part of the work will result in single-tracking between College Park and Greenbelt, and probably longer waits for the rest of us. Work on the far southern portion of the Yellow line begins in March, so that might have some effects for us too.
Thankfully though, the Green and Yellow lines have a lot less work scheduled than the other lines, I assume because the Green line is newer.
Anybody know any good phone games to play while waiting for the train?
