Straphangers are getting more service underground in Manhattan.

Verizon announced their customers can now access wireless in five more stations including Bryant Park and Herald Square.

WiFi is now available in 35 stations.

A deal was announced to wire the subway system last year.

AT&T, T-Mobile, Verizon Wireless and Sprint all signed on, but only AT&T and T-Mobile service were initially available.

The program is being paid for by technology company Transit Wireless, which hopes to make the services available in all underground stations by 2017.
