Cameras in Public Transport Vehicles

Living

We’re guarding your safety, even during transport – we’ve fitted cameras in the public transport that monitor what’s going on in the vehicles.

What’s the aim of the project?

To improve the safety of both public transport passengers and drivers

What’s the benefit of the project?

Pilsen City Transport Company are gradually installing cameras, which monitor the situation inside all their vehicles.

The cameras will be of a mainly preventive character. We expect a significant reduction in the number of cases of assault, pickpocketing and hooliganism. There will always be 5 to 8 cameras in the cars, depending on the size of the vehicle.

The cameras will locally make recordings on an internal SD card and always store them on the central city storage at the terminal station, or in the depot, using a Wi-Fi connection. This way, the recordings can reach the city police desk usually with a maximum delay of half an hour. In the future, an online broadcast is planned, which would provide a direct connection with the police.

The recordings will not be owned by the PCTC, and will only be processed by the police, so in addition to prevention, they will also be used to investigate potential incidents. The guaranteed minimum data storage time will be three weeks.

The camera system consists of durable vehicle-certified IP cameras with 1080p resolution.
