Here’s what you need to know:
- Sprint has joined Verizon in providing underground cell service between Union Station and 7th Street/Metro Center.
- Emergency calls can be made, or you can report incidents using the text feature on Transit Watch app.
- T-Mobile has signed up to provide service and negotiations continue with AT&T.
- The next phase will extend service from 7th/Metro to Wilshire/Western on the Purple Line. The service is expected to be up and running by fall 2016.
Subsequent phases of the program will then expand the service on the Red Line from Wilshire/Vermont Station to the North Hollywood Station in the San Fernando Valley. Service will also be provided on Metro Gold Line underground stations in Pasadena and in East Los Angeles. Those expansions should be completed in 2017.
