Safety Vision wins $5.6 million contract for RTC of Southern Nevada
Safety Vision, LLC recently won a $5.6 million dollar contract to provide mobile video surveillance equipment for the Regional Transportation Commission of Southern Nevada. In total, 227 buses will be retrofitted, of which 130 are double-decker buses, 49 are articulated buses, and 48 are forty foot low-floor buses. Several major competitors were bypassed, providing Safety Vision with the winning bid. “Our levels of dedication to winning this prominent bid were more prolific than ever, and it paid off,” said Archie Doyle, Safety Vision’s lead Account Executive for the proposal.
The RTC will be using an advanced network video recording system (NVR) to provide video and audio surveillance over public transportation options. NVRs transmit video over an on-bus network infrastructure, allowing for high resolution footage and remote viewing. The RTC purchased Safety Vision’s flagship NVR, the RoadRecorder® 7000S. As well, over 2,500 high definition cameras will be deployed to help eliminate driver blind spots and monitor all passenger activities. Safety Vision will also provide RTC with wireless downloading equipment.
The RTC ranks among the largest public transportation agencies in the United States. Of the 50 largest transit agencies, the RTC is ranked 27th; of the 50 largest bus agencies in urbanized areas, the RTC is ranked 17th; and of the 50 largest demand response (on-call) agencies in urbanized areas, the RTC is ranked 13th. These numbers, courtesy of the American Public Transportation Association, highlight the magnitude of the RTC’s influence.
The RTC acts as both the transit authority and transportation-planning agency of the Las Vegas Valley. The Commission seeks to integrate transit systems geographically, including the use of intermodal options, to ultimately improve the sustainability of operations and air quality of the region. The RTC also funds expansion, operations, and maintenance of its systems and routes as well as seeks to enhance public awareness of their existence.
