Posted by at 5:47 pm on October 31, 2011

Amtrak has expanded the Wi-Fi network it began offering nearly two years ago. There have been 12 East Coast routes added, with the addition making 60 percent of all Amtrak routes offering Wi-Fi. The company has plans to hit 75 percent of it routes in the near future.

The new routes include Northeast Regional between Virginia and Boston, Keystone Service that connects New York, Philadelphia, and Harrisburg, and Empire Service that links New York, Albany, and Buffalo. Less major new routes include the Carolinian, the Downeaster, the Ethan Allen Express, the New Haven-Springfield Shuttle, and the Vermonter. Four others, Adirondack, Maple Leaf, Palmetto, and the Pennsylvanian, offer Wi-Fi hotspots only in marked cars.

The next expansion will be in California, with the Capitol Corridor, Pacific Surfliner​ and San Joaquin trains getting Wi-Fi before year’s end.
