BART awarded $5.4M for security cameras

Posted on October 31, 2007

San Francisco-based Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART) will receive $5.4 million for surveillance camera upgrades. The funds are the first installation out of a total of $19.9 billion, based on the Proposition 1B Bond measure that voters approved last November. 

The transit agency already has many cameras on its system, but will use the money to standardize their system to the most up-to-date equipment. Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger’s office made the announcement at a news conference on Oct. 29.  

BART will place cameras in stations on trains and in parking lots. The upgraded system will include more advanced software that enables cameras to detect suspicious activities. The cameras will be employed not only to deter potential terrorist incidents, but also to alert BART employees to everyday crimes and promote passenger safety.
