Utah transit equips fleet with SmartDrive

Posted on April 3, 2014

Utah Transit Authority (UTA) selected SmartDrive Systems to provide its video-based operator performance and safety program for its nearly 600 buses and paratransit vehicles.

By mid-2014, UTA will begin using SmartDrive Safety in-vehicle recorders to capture video and vehicle data during its bus and paratransit vehicles’ daily routes. All recorded event clips will go through the SmartDrive Review Center where SmartDrive's specialists provide video analysis services including reviewing, scoring and prioritizing videos for coaching.

“The UTA has long been an industry leader in the use of cutting-edge technologies and services for safety, operational efficiency and optimal rider experience,” said Steve Mitgang, CEO of SmartDrive. “We are proud to have been chosen for this project by such a prominent transit innovator and view this as validation of the positive impact our video-based safety program can have on agencies.”

The SmartDrive Safety program has been installed on more than 10,000 transit vehicles in the last year, helping agencies to better protect vehicle operators and the public while lowering operational costs.

In addition to the UTA, 26 transit agencies across the U.S. have deployed the SmartDrive solution; customers include Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority, Dallas Area Rapid Transit, Nassau County and Veolia Transportation.
