2008_12_nycbus.jpgThe MTA announced it will no longer put security cameras on its buses. Back in 2006, the MTA announced a $5.2 million pilot program with Integrian to put video surveillance equipment on 400 Manhattan buses, and then, if successful, the cameras would be rolled out to the entire 4,500 bus fleet. Now the Post reports that cameras were installed on only 272 buses—plus Integrian has gone out of business (the MTA says the system had "all kinds of issues"). This comes after a bus driver was killed by a fare-beating passenger earlier this month and two other incidents of bus drivers being assaulted during robberies.
