TOTUS™ Public Transit Application

As transit agencies continue to seek innovative and effective means to increase ridership and improve the image of public transportation, the safety and security of public bus stops and transit stations are critical considerations for patrons, transit agencies, and the communities they serve.

 

TOTUS™’ Outdoor Lighting Based Security Platforms are designed for rapid deployment at bus stops and transit stations. TOTUS Security Platforms™ integrate a complete IP video surveillance system, secure communications, and sensor monitoring technologies for unparalleled physical security and effective response.

 

According to the National Center for Transit Research the following security enhancements were recognized as key areas that should be addressed to improve physical security of bus stops and mass transit stations:

 

  • Increased lighting
  • Emergency two-way communications/call points
  • Video surveillance

 

TOTUS Security Platforms™ extend the presence of security personnel by engaging individuals with visual and audio messages and warnings.  TOTUS™ deters unwanted activity through automated Event Action Processing.

 

Event Action Process Components for Public Transit Application:

Surveillance
