Safety on buses

All Transfort passenger buses are equipped with a mobile video security system to allow Transfort operations and law enforcement staff to view live video feeds from nearby vehicles, improving the safety and security of operators and passengers.

Transfort can also use GPS data reported through the security system to identify the exact location of buses along their routes. This information is useful for daily operations and allows dispatchers to monitor and actively manage buses, and the ability to provide live vehicle location information could prove very valuable in an emergency situation.
