The CTA is moving ahead with plans to upgrade wireless service in its subway tunnels.

The existing system is nine years old and doesn't work well with current technology.

The CTA is taking bids to install a new wireless network.

It plans to award a contract by this summer.

The goal is for all subway tunnels to have continuous cellphone service.
