Safety and Security Action Plan

Onboard monitors provide a reminder that cameras are always on

For security purposes, all buses and trains are equipped with multiple security cameras. 

And now, passengers on some buses can see what’s being captured as they ride. Small monitors that show what’s being recorded onboard are now being installed behind the driver’s area on nearly 40 buses. More monitors are due to be installed as funding allows.   

Like cameras at automatic check-outs, the monitors serve as a reminder that security cameras are in use. That awareness could help deter bad behavior.  

Installing monitors like these is one of 40 actions included in the Safety & Security Action Plan. Share your thoughts by contacting Customer Relations at comments@metrotransit.org.
