Public Transportation: Road-Facing

The most important priorities for a public transportation fleet are their drivers, passengers and vehicles. SmartWitness public transportation dash cam solutions help keep an eye and ear on these assets, coaching drivers with video evidence, recording exactly what happened in an incident and monitoring the impact of driving behaviors on your passengers and events.


Capturing the truth starts here.
Mounted on the windshield, SmartWitness wide-angle, road-facing cameras are the starting point for video telematics, and one of the most critical. These cameras cover the front view of the vehicle, capturing the critical data and evidence needed to protect drivers, passengers, vehicles and fleet investments.

SmartWitness video telematics systems and technology are designed to be modular to fit each customer’s precise needs. Choose the solutions that are right for you:

  • Adds context to external road events and harsh behaviors
  • Speeds claims resolution and exoneration of driver/fleet owner from false claims
  • Ensures stops are being made as planned, with video plus GPS/Routing
  • Provides visibility into root causes of high frequency, non-emergency incidents (bikes, passengers crossing in front; impatient vehicles passing or cutting in front)
  • Mitigates personal injury claims and potentially high litigation costs
  • Positively impacts driver behavior
  • Reduces vehicle wear and tear by encouraging smoother driving habits
  • Can positively impact insurance premiums
  • Shows what the driver could see before, during and immediately following an incident
  • Buses (all types/sizes), limousines and taxis
  • Mass transit trains and shuttles
  • School buses/pupil transportation
  • Emergency response vehicles (first responder)
  • Fleet managers just starting a video program
  • External contractors performing services for the municipality
  • Passenger vehicle owners/drivers
  • Municipal vehicles
  • Drivers consistently operating in extreme or high traffic road conditions

Consider upgrading or adding additional cameras when:

  • Instituting a driver safety, behavior or scorecarding program
  • You have to or want to add coaching to improve driver behaviors
  • You need to link individual driver behavior with events
  • You require advanced exoneration support—more data to show what the driver was doing before, during and after an event to address an incident or litigation
  • Drivers are ready for immediate feedback and passive coaching through real-time device notifications, reducing the need for personal coaching sessions
