FAST-TRACK and cost-free mobile phone charging points have been set up on four station platforms in Barcelona, and 16 stops have free wi-fi.

Both sides of the line at the Sagrada Família metro stop; Passeig de Gràcia station in the Badalona-Pompeu Fabra direction, and Paral·lel, plus in the entrance area of Universitat – all on Line 2 – now have Quick Charge 3.0 points with four USB connectors each attached.

The firm beyind the battery points, Yupcharge, says this is a pilot scheme only but that itmay roll out to the rest of the Barcelona metro in due course if successful.

Five units with a 58W power level and exit tension of 5-12W, have been designed specially for metro trains.

Quick Charge 3.0 lives up to its name – it is created to enable a five-minute charging session to give five hours of battery.

Also, 16 metro stations in Barcelona and 90% of the buses now have basic wi-fi, with a 256-kW-per-second connection – the maximum permitted in accordance with telecommunications regulations.

The wi-fi and mobile chargers were among some of the most popular requests received by the metropolitan transport board.
