BALTIMORE – Travelers at Baltimore Penn Station can now enjoy improved high-speed Wi-Fi, with enhanced connectivity and reliability. The newly-implemented Wi-Fi solution involves the replacement of technology that has been in service since 2010. Baltimore Penn Station is one of two stations across Amtrak’s national network, including Chicago Union Station, chosen to pilot these upgrades.

“These improvements are a much-anticipated boost for our customers as the wireless connectivity in-station should be similar to what customers experience on their home networks, and will ensure they stay connected throughout their journey,” says Jason Molfetas, Amtrak's executive vice president of marketing and business development. “Baltimore Penn is the eighth busiest station in our national network so it was a natural fit to pilot the Wi-Fi improvements to the city’s thousands of daily commuters and local students.”

Launch of the upgraded in-station Wi-Fi also includes two new high-top work space tables in the station’s main hall. The 30-inch tables include charging outlets and will enable Penn Station customers to work with greater ease while waiting for their trains and connections.

In addition, customers will see a custom AmtrakConnect website featuring relevant Baltimore Penn Station content such as real-time arrivals and departures and information on local transit connections and parking. The site will also provide customers with information about neighboring restaurants and tourism opportunities.
