KANSAS CITY, Kan. (AP) — Bus riders in Kansas City now have access to free Wi-Fi.

The Kansas City Star reports the free Internet connection is offered at the 47th Street Transit Center. The newspaper on Thursday reported that the center is the first in the metropolitan area to offer free Wi-Fi.

Local officials say Sprint has agreed to provide the service at no cost for at least a year. The commitment will be re-evaluated at a later date.

The Kansas City Area Transportation Authority previously announced free Wi-Fi on all Max busses and 22 other Metro buses. That service will be provided by T-Mobile US.
