TransLink (BC) is adding 600 security cameras to its bus fleet with a goal of protecting drivers and customers, reviewing incidents, and investigating claims. The agency placed cameras in 244 buses in 2006 and says they have helped protect drivers and solve crimes. According to TransLink, the number of bus driver assaults has dropped 20% on buses equipped with cameras, from 44 assaults in 2009 to 35 in 2010, compared to a 7% drop on buses without cameras (from 82 to 76).
