This time, a guy came around every once in a while and said which stop would be next, but never said how far away we were. I'm not super familiar with the different stops because they haven't been the same on each of my trips and I had to use Google maps to see how far away we were. It didn't help that the train was running more than 30 minutes late without an announcement as to why. The speakers, or the screens above the doors should be used to announce the upcoming stop and maybe the time or distance to that stop. The Wi-Fi barely worked. I was trying to do work because I had to leave early to make the train and I wasn't able to consistently connect. For that reason, I am going to say the Wi-Fi was not working. More
