    In New York and Toronto, more than 7 million subway commuters, every day, are digitally enabled by our cellular and Wi-Fi networks.


    Transit Wireless, a majority-owned BAI Communications company, is the exclusive long-term provider contracted to finance, design, build and maintain the public Wi-Fi in all New York City underground stations.


    The network we built covers 243 sq. miles, with more than 4,000 antennas and 5,000 Wi-Fi access points. The cellular and Wi-Fi connectivity we delivered also includes a dedicated 4.9 GHz public safety band licensed to the Metropolitan Transportation Authority.


    For almost a decade BAI has partnered with the Toronto Transit Commission (TTC) to deliver connectivity to the Toronto underground, which also enables PRESTO’S electronic ticketing system for the TTC.


    We have funded, designed and built Toronto subway’s cellular coverage, public Wi-Fi, and fibre optics network. This includes Wi-Fi and cellular coverage for across 75 underground stations, and all mezzanines, walkways, passageways and stairs throughout the Toronto transit system.


    In Hong Kong, we help connect 2 billion underground passengers every year. Our relationship with Mass Transit Railway exceeds 20 years, during which we have provided design, supply, installation, testing, commissioning, maintenance and project management services.


    In Australia, we own and operate one of the most extensive transmission networks in the world, delivering
    59 million broadcasting hours to 99% of the population
    . In times of crisis, such as natural disasters, national broadcasters rely on us to maintain their connection with Australians and emergency services rely on us to help keep them informed.


    In the UK, we are leveraging our global network of experts paired with local in-depth knowledge to work with industry leaders and explore the role of technology in the transport system of the future. The investment in our UK office underlines BAI’s long-term commitment to the UK and desire to expand our European presence in coming years.
