Greater Dayton RTA to equip fleet with video surveillance

Posted on March 29, 2016

Apollo Video Technology (Apollo Video) has been selected by Greater Dayton Regional Transit Authority (RTA) to install the RoadRunner HD™ mobile video surveillance system across its fleet of trolleys, fixed route and paratransit buses.

This solution offers RTA a technologically advanced yet easy-to-use system that is designed to improve safety for both operators and passengers.

“By improving the visibility of operations with high definition video that can be easily captured and transferred, Apollo Video will help us solve our most pressing needs now with a scalable solution that will allow us to further improve our system in the future,” said Brandon Policicchio, deputy chief operations officer of RTA.

Apollo Video will install the RoadRunner HD™ system across 181 fixed-route buses and trolleys and 75 paratransit buses. Apollo Video will also install routers and Vehicle Information Management (ViM™) Software to automate video downloads triggered by events and to notify transit personnel of system health status. Such capabilities allow RTA operators to monitor route punctuality, observe driver behavior, and determine vehicle location in the event of an emergency.

“From monitoring the health of onboard equipment to providing high-definition, easily accessible video footage, our solution will strengthen agency operations and support rider and operator safety across RTA’s diverse fleet,” said Rodell Notbohm, CEO of Apollo Video Technology.

Through the partnership with RTA, Apollo Video will also provide annual system maintenance checks over the next five years.
