Why Utah Transit Authority was Ready for a Video-Based Safety Program
Utah Transit Authority has provided public bus service throughout the Utah Wasatch Front for over 45 years. Covering over 1,400 square miles, service areas include Box Elder, Davis, Salt Lake, Tooele, Utah and Weber counties. UTA has long been an industry leader in the use of cutting-edge technologies and services for safety, operational efficiency and optimal rider experience. Adding SmartDrive to UTA’s overall safety program helps to better protect vehicle operators and the public while lowering operational costs.
Why the SmartDrive® program is the Smart Choice for UTA
UTA chose the SmartDrive program following a thorough evaluation of multiple vendors. UTA uses SmartDrive Safety in-vehicle recorders to capture video and vehicle data during its bus and paratransit vehicles’ daily routes. All recorded event clips go through the SmartDrive Review Center where SmartDrive’s specialists provide video analysis services including reviewing, scoring and prioritizing videos for coaching.
SmartDrive Assurance for Transit Capabilities
The SmartDrive program is architected specifically for transit agencies’ entire fleet of vehicles, with capabilities such as extended event recording, integration with on-board active safety systems and the ability to integrate with third and fourth cameras on the vehicle – a first for a video-based safety program serving the transit industry.
The SmartDrive solution provides more comprehensive capture of safety events on transit vehicles of any type including buses, paratransit vehicles, shuttles and vans – giving agencies faster insights into risk and better tools to protect passengers and the public.
