The Metropolitan Atlanta Rapid Transit Authority (MARTA) in Atlanta has selected the RoadRunner on-board video surveillance system and Vehicle Information Management Software from Apollo Video Technology for its fleet of approximately 1,000 transit buses, trains and mobility vans.

Installation is scheduled to begin later this year with all vehicles expected to be outfitted by 2014.

The deployment demonstrates the agency’s initiative and dedication to enhance MARTA with the latest technology to increase safety and reduce crime throughout the Authority. The Apollo Video system will allow MARTA law enforcement personnel to monitor live video feeds and better respond to incidents on-board agency vehicles, at stations and transit stops.
Apollo Video will equip transit and rail vehicles with digital video recorders, wireless network equipment and back-end fleet management software. Interior and exterior cameras will be placed throughout recording up to 11 cameras on-board each vehicle. Apollo Video’s ViM Software is designed to provide a sophisticated back-end solution for organizing recorded data and increasing accessibility to more agency employees. The ViM Software will work seamlessly with current and future installations of Apollo Video systems deployed at MARTA, extending the lifetime of MARTA’s technology investments.
