The Welsh government is bringing free WiFi to all passengers across Wales as part of its Prosperity for All Economic Action Plan. The £1.5million investment means that all Arriva Trains Wales will be providing the service.
The WG’s Economy and Transport Secretary, Ken Skates, said: “This rollout should be a real boon to commuters and business users alike. I expect it to make a real contribution to our ambitions for a growing economy with strong businesses in productive regions set out our Prosperity for All Economic Action Plan.”
“Importantly, our investment means that Pacer trains, Class 153’s, and the carriages used on our north-south Express all now have free-to-use Wi-Fi for all passengers. These trains amount to almost one-third of the fleet.”
“Passengers across the Valley Lines and West Wales – including the Heart of Wales line – will now benefit from this vital connectivity. This is another example of our strong record of investment in the current rail franchise where we continue to fund additional services and capacity across Wales.”
