Calgary Transit passengers will be without the option of public Wi-Fi at all CTrain stations as the equipment has been turned off over concerns the sweltering heat could potentially cause damage.

Transit officials announced the temporary removal of public Wi-Fi Tuesday afternoon. 

The disruption will remain in place until temperatures return to seasonal and concerns for the state of the Wi-Fi equipment wane.
