Based on the results of a high-level scan on the use and adoption of advanced technology by public transit agencies, a video monitoring system costs approximately $10,000 per vehicle.
Based on the results of a high-level scan on the use and adoption of advanced technology by public transit agencies, the FTA study has reported that a video monitoring system may cost approximately $10,000 per vehicle (bus). The addition of other integrated systems such as automated passenger counters, event recorders, voice annunicators, and equipment health monitoring may only cost a few thousand dollars more, but increases the cost effectiveness of deploying the communication and computer processing infrastructure required to support the video monitoring system.
