Hybrid security surveillance for Californian buses
Bakersfield bus company takes hybrid analogue and IP surveillance cameras plus on-board recording systems for improved transport security.
Safety Vision has recently fulfilled a large contract to install on-board video surveillance systems for the Golden Empire Transit District (GETD) in Bakersfield, California. A total of 86 fixed route buses and 19 buses for disabled people were retrofitted.
The GETD will be using Safety Vision’s Observer 4112 and the Observer 4120 hybrid video recorder (HVR) systems to provide video and audio surveillance over public transport options. These hybrid recorders allow the user to incorporate both analogue and high resolution IP cameras into the same system in order to conserve hard drive storage space. In addition to the Observer 4112 and the Observer 4120 HVRs, GETD purchased the Foresight PRO viewing software and Automatic Download System (ADS). Safety Vision also provided the GETD with wireless downloading equipment.
The Golden Empire Transit District was established in 1973 and provides fixed route and disabled passenger services for the Bakersfield Metropolitan area. The District operates 16 bus routes 7 days a week with approximately 7 million annual boardings. GETD has an active fleet of 86 fixed route low floor transit buses plus 19 specially adapted disabled passenger vehicles. All buses are equipped with wheelchair lifts and bike racks.
