The need to close public spaces like libraries has left those who don’t have internet at home and who rely on hot spots without any way to get online. MTA has partnered with the City of Wasilla, the City of Palmer, the City of Houston, and the Mat-Su Borough to create a unique solution to this problem. We’ve installed a “drive-in” WiFi hot spots in different parking lots that allow you to connect while still respecting our need for social distancing.

MTA is proud to have provided free upgrades to nearly 3,000 students and educators as they transitioned to eLearning. We provisioned the fastest possible internet speeds available at their location along with unlimited data, so that education in our community may proceed.
To avoid the spread of COVID-19, and as a precautionary measure for the safety of our employees, our members and the community, we have decided to close our retail lobbies to the public until further notice.
Though our physical offices may be temporarily closing, all of our member solutions will remain available electronically, including:
It’s clear that the health and safety precautions put in place due to COVID-19 are going to be with us for quite some time. Given this situation, we have adjusted to meet these challenges in a measured, thoughtful manner. A majority of MTA’s employees successfully transitioned to remote work environments and we have modified our procedures as information becomes available, always with the goal of safety first and meeting our obligations as an essential service provider.
With this in mind, we will continue to keep our retail and lobby locations closed to the public at this time. MTA offers a variety of alternative options for members to conduct business with their co-op, that are convenient, flexible and safe. Additional information on these options is available on this website, under the “COVID-19 Updates and Information” heading.
This pandemic has left our community and our state with a level of uncertainty about the future. In trying times such as these, you can count on MTA, your locally-owned co-op, to continue to deliver exceptional customer care, service and products that keep you connected to loved ones, work, school and resources – of that you can be certain.
