Waukesha County Will Use Stimulus Funds to Equip Buses with Cameras

Waukesha - All Waukesha Metro Transit system buses will be equipped with security cameras in about two months, thanks to federal stimulus funds.

With the allocation of $1,277,951 in funds from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act, the Waukesha Transit Commission Board has authorized spending to equip buses with cameras, Johnson said.

The city transit commission also administers county transit funds, and $200,000 in federal stimulus funds is being spent to buy eight vans for a van pool that can help get workers to jobs where regular transit routes do not exist.
