Enhances Passenger Safety: Users of the bus system want to be confident that their mode of transportation is a safe one. Onboard video surveillance cameras give riders the assurance that the authorities are doing everything in their power to provide a high level of security.

Protects the Drivers: Bus drivers must put a lot of faith in their passengers acting appropriately. Unfortunately, one never knows what type of riders will step onto the bus on any given day. The presence of onboard security cameras acts as a deterrent  and helps investigation of unacceptable behaviour and aggressive outbursts directed towards drivers.

Enforces Rider Regulations: Bus rules and regulations are easier to enforce with a second set of eyes. Riders who know they’re under watch are more likely to follow rules, pay bus fares, and obey driver orders.

Prevents Theft: Onboard security cameras monitor bus activity, and act as a preventive measure against incidents of theft.

Deters Violence: The unpredictable nature of bus passengers throughout the day can at times lead to violent incidents. A surveillance system can help monitor this and keep it in check.

Crime Investigation: Footage from onboard security cameras can prove invaluable in criminal investigations of incidents taking place on the bus.
