BART to outfit cameras on every train car
BART spokeswoman Alicia Trost issued the following statement:
“BART has committed to install a working camera system on each and every train car as quickly as possible. Staff is already working on funding options, a procurement plan, and deployment strategy. Our riders and employees' safety is BART's top priority.
BART, like all forms of public transit, is a safe mode of transportation. Prior to this announcement, we utilized a robust surveillance system with cameras located in train cars, on platforms, in stations, and even on our individual police officers.
BART's new Fleet of the Future trains already have cameras on all cars. Now, both our existing and future cars will have security cameras.”
