Hundreds of new buses a year to be fitted with LOOK systems.
LOOK CCTV has signed a three year, £3.7 million contract with Stagecoach to supply and install CCTV on its new buses.
The contract will ensure all new buses ordered by Stagecoach up to the end of 2012 are fitted with state-of-the-art digital CCTV systems. Under the new contract, hundreds of new Stagecoach buses a year will be fitted with LOOK systems, which will be covered by a six-year warranty.
Digital CCTV systems provide bus and coach operators with a powerful tool to combat crime on buses and reduce fraudulent insurance claims.
The LOOK system includes wireless network applications to streamline CCTV maintenance and provide high capacity data logging for video and audio recording. Over 18,000 systems have been installed to bus and coach operators.
Les Warneford, Managing Director of Stagecoach UK Bus, said: "The safety and security of our customers and our people is fundamental to our business, and public transport is the safest way to travel.
