The Metropolitan Atlanta Rapid Transit Authority (MARTA) has selected the RoadRunner on-board video surveillance system and Vehicle Information Management (ViM) Software from Apollo Video Technology for its fleet of approximately 1,000 transit buses, trains and mobility vans.
The surveillance system is designed to enhance safety and security for MARTA riders and employees by deterring criminal activity and serving as an investigative tool for the system’s police force.
“Installation of the new vehicle security camera system will provide us with an additional resource for investigating criminal activity and nuisance behavior for the safety of MARTA employees and customers,” says MARTA Police Chief Wanda Dunham. “These cameras will also contribute to MPD’s “See Something, Say Something” campaign and will assist with crime prevention and homeland security efforts.”
Installation is scheduled to begin later this year with all vehicles expected to be outfitted by 2014. The $17 million project is a result of a 2011 formal procurement, which was approved and officially announced at a March 5 board of directors meeting in Atlanta.
Apollo Video will equip transit and rail vehicles with digital video recorders, wireless network equipment and back-end fleet management software. Interior and exterior cameras will be placed throughout recording up to 11 cameras on-board each vehicle.
