Have you been receiving texts or calls while in the subway lately? That’s because cellular coverage is now complete across the entire Red and Purple Lines.
Here’s a quick update on subway cell service:
•Red Line from Union Station to Vermont/Sunset — Cell service is available for all four carriers: AT&T, Verizon, T-Mobile and Verizon.
•Purple Line from Union Station to Wilshire/Western – Cell service is available on the entire Purple Line for all four major carriers: AT&T, Verizon, T-Mobile and Sprint.
•Red Line from Hollywood/Western to North Hollywood — AT&T and Verizon are now available. Sprint will sign on later this summer. T-Mobile has not yet signed up to provide service through the Hollywood segment.
Though cell service is now available along most of the subway, we still ask that in the event of an emergency riders first consider contacting the train operator via the emergency intercom before calling 9-1-1. Riders can also use the messaging feature on the recently revamped and improved Transit Watch app to report issues directly to law enforcement.
