Coweta County Transit vans now have security cameras on all active fleet vehicles. The multi-camera system is designed to provide riders and operators with an extra layer of security.
“Coweta County Transit’s new camera system is a much-needed technological improvement to better our public transit system”, says Transportation Manager Tavores Edwards. “The cameras assist in improving the safety and protection of our riders and the drivers, and also is beneficial ...in matters involving accidents/incidents, complaints and other issues.”
Each bus has 4 cameras (front facing, rear facing, door facing, road facing). Each camera connects to a DVR (digital video recorder) and records up to 30 days. There is a GPS sensor, accelerometer, and panic button. These mark the recordings with “events” so they can be easily found. Events include hard breaking, hard acceleration, wrecks, or the driver pressing a panic button. The video can be retrieved via a laptop or desktop computer.
Coweta County Transit provides transit services to business, commercial and activity centers in Coweta County and is funded with federal, state and local dollars.
