Metro first experimented with offering WiFi last August, when it launched a pilot program at six of its stations: Metro Center, Gallery Place, L’Enfant Plaza, Union Station, Judiciary Square, and Archives.

Metro plans to start expanding the WiFi this summer, with 60 percent of stations connected by the end of the year. The remaining stations will be completed in 2018.

In a December statement, Metro GM Paul Wiedefeld said the move was “based on positive rider feedback.”
