The benefits of being connected

BAI Canada’s latest project has made cellular service available throughout every station in the Toronto Transit Commission. Now the team is working on expanding that connectivity into the TTC tunnels: it is already operational in tunnels between Bloor Yonge and King Street and on the 9km York-Spadina subway extension.

Celebrating International Women’s Day

BAI Communications is excited to celebrate International Women’s Day 2018. As part of our celebrations globally, we have invited all staff members, men and women, to share in a talk from an inspiring woman, Chelsea Pottenger.

Transit Wireless in the P3 Landscape; Part 1, a Legal Perspective

Transit Wireless’ 27-year P3 partnership with the MTA guarantees that it maintains and grows the network over the time of the contract. How does it not only sustain, but improve connectivity in an ever-expanding network 80+ ft underground, subject to various external factors? Here Kate Dominus, Counsel and Commercial Contracts Manager at Transit Wireless (a BAI Communications majority owned company) provides a legal perspective.

Facts and fiction about underground connectivity

When speaking to commuters on the TTC recently, we found that many of them didn’t know cellular and Wi-Fi connectivity was there at all or had some misconceptions about how it works. So we decided to separate fact from fiction by explaining how the network functions and how we can all take advantage of this exciting new service.

Building a better network

We’re proud to be part of delivering a connected future for Toronto through our work with the TTC. Here we look closely at our experience of building in underground transit environments, the challenges faced and the future planning involved, the unique nature of the Toronto project, and the results delivered to date.

How modernizing the commuter experience is at the heart of Toronto’s transit strategy

The rapidly growing Toronto Region is home to 7.8 million people and as well as being the economic engine of both Ontario and Canada, has gained a strong reputation for digital and tech excellence. And at the heart of this development has been the modernisation of the city’s transport network – which includes the delivery of Wi-Fi and cellular services to the TTC subway system.

The global drive for connectivity

In cities across the globe, wireless connectivity is driving the trend towards a transit experience that’s smart, safe, fun and fluid. In Singapore, Wi-Fi data is being used to monitor and improve passenger flow. In Seoul, free Wi-Fi is available across the entire city, streamlining every experience from catching a train to parking a car. Now it’s Toronto’s turn.

Imagine living in a connected and smarter Toronto

The City of Toronto has launched multiple projects that aim to harness the power of cutting-edge technology to better serve its residents, in the quest to become a “smarter city”. These include smart traffic pilot projects that respond to real-time traffic patterns, a mini smart city on the waterfront and the recent completion of a wireless communications network by BAI Canada.
