wireless phone users will soon be able to stay connected on the subway.

Today the Chicago Transit Authority Board approved a plan to add cell phone service for AT&T customers on the red and blue subway lines.

The CTA currently has subway cell phone deals with Verizon, U.S. Cellular and Cricket.

AT&T service begins later this year.

The 10-year contract is expected to bring in over 3 million dollars in revenue for the CTA.
