Bus security camera installation begins in Powell River
Powell River – Phased installation is now underway of closed-circuit TV (CCTV) cameras on four BC Transit buses in Powell River. All medium- and heavy-duty buses acquired after 2005 will have the cameras installed, and new buses, 27 feet and longer, will be delivered with the cameras already factory-installed.
To date, over 400 buses have had CCTV cameras installed and have showed positive results.
The estimated budget to equip the four buses with this new technology is approximately $19,000. The installation is funded by the Public Transit Infrastructure Fund, which is contributing $160 million to projects across British Columbia.
