London Bridge becomes the second Network Rail managed station to offer free Wi-Fi to its travellers
Millions of station users are set to benefit from the launch of free Wi-Fi in London Bridge station as the service hopes to improve the experience of passengers and people using the station.
The station, which just reopened following a £1 billion redevelopment will offer a host of features including:
- High speed Wi-Fi
- Travel updates,
- Downloadable Magazines
- Move Trailers
- A kids zone
- A retail section including a directory and details of any offers
David Biggs, managing director of Network Rail Property, said, “Our managed stations have already grown to become destinations in their own right, where people can meet, eat and travel. Now London Bridge and Euston stations are places where they can digitally connect too.
“The latest passenger survey results show that customer’s priorities for station improvements include Wi-Fi and we’ve seen enormous popularity with the service at Euston station since it launched in October 2016, with around 270,000 people now registered as users.”
John Halsall, Network Rail’s route managing director for the South East, said: “Everything we do on the railway is aimed at making our passengers’ journeys better, whether that is through running more trains to more places, improving reliability, or the ability to log on to the internet at our newest and biggest station. The logistics of supplying Wi-Fi for 140,000 people every day are staggering and it’s great to see this being rolled out.”
The project aligns with the Government’s ambitions around Wi-Fi and mobile connectivity across the rail industry.
