OC Transpo Drivers Being Monitored

Big Brother is coming to OC Transpo.

A report for Ottawa's Transit Committee says the Transit Service is launching a six month pilot project using DriveCam units.

The system utilizes on-board event-triggered video technology for data collection.

OC Transpo has consulted with the Toronto Transit Commission, Calgary Transit, Coast Mountain Bus and Translink in Vancouver regarding their Closed Circuit Television systems.

265 OC Transpo buses will be equipped with DriveCam units for the pilot project.
