Washington State Safety Rest Areas are Wireless

Twenty-eight of 42 Washington Safety Rest Areas now offer wireless connectivity. This service is provided by a private contractor, Road Connect, at no cost to the Washington State Department of Transportation (WSDOT). The service began just in time for Labor Day weekend 2006.

Driver safety is a primary concern for WSDOT and rest areas provide travelers the opportunity to take a break from driving, stretch their legs and relax before hitting the road again. By providing wireless Internet at the rest areas, travelers are now given another reason to pull off the highway and take a break.

All wireless Internet users at the twenty-eight rest areas are able to access road conditions, traveler information and other information offered on the Washington State Department of Transportation (WSDOT) Internet web site and related Web sites for no cost.

To view other web sites or use email, users can subscribe to Road Connect by paying the following fees:

* 20 minutes – $1.99
* Daily – $3.99
* Weekly – $7.99
* Monthly – $29.99
