Riders on New York City subways want to stay connected.

Sprint will participate in the multi-year project to provide cell phone and data connectivity to customers in New York’s underground subway stations.

Transit Wireless and the Metropolitan Transportation Authority announced that 30 new subway stations in mid-town Manhattan, including Times Square, Rockefeller Center, Lincoln Center and Columbus Circle, are now online.

Sprint customers are expected to be able to use the network later this year.
