The Regional Transit Authority of Greater Cleveland is wrapping up a $2 million upgrade to put surveillance cameras on all of its vehicles and at every station.
Spokeswoman Mary Shaffer says the technology will aid transit police in monitoring the safety of passengers and drivers. “This allows you to at least have eyes and ears everywhere, on every vehicle, at every station, even if a human can’t be there at that moment.”
Some of the RTA fleet has had the technology since 2006, but many of the older buses didn’t.
Shaffer says the new system of cameras will all be integrated, and provide both audio and video recordings. RTA budgeted the upgrade last spring, and plans to finish installing the equipment by the end of this year.
