The board of New Jersey Transit today is expected to approve the purchase of a fleet of 1,145 new buses that will include closed-circuit camera systems to bolster security.
"They have great deterrent value," said Jim Gigantino, acting vice president and general manager for bus operations. "If there's an incident that does occur, the images can be retrieved."
He said the cameras would not be monitored, but would record digitally. Pictures could be retrieved and used by police. Several cameras will be positioned inside each bus.
