(MTA) has a lot of video cameras that don't work, i wouldn't be surprised if this one is not working.

Exactly, didn't the company that made those cameras go bankrupt? Ie: useless cameras? To me they are nothing more than just mockups now to give would be farebeaters [some not all] 2nd thoughts before doing something stupid.

None of the cameras except the few on the 1000 series D60HFs work

Speaking of which, isn't it funny how nearly all the companies that the (MTA) deals with, always wind up bankrupt? St Louis, Pullman, these cameras, those priority seating on the R160s...

The company who installed those cameras went out of business, hence nobody to maintain the cameras, so out of all of the buses they installed cameras on, rouhly 15% of them actually work!! They are just to scare people, which doesn't work too well

Yup, totally true. Those cameras are just a major waste. People are still entering via the back of the bus and not paying.

What they should have are cops/inspectors at the major stops [not every limited stops] and maybe have them make sure there's no farebeating or something. At least it would be better than nothing.

To add, that company was Integrian...which was a start-up that went under. The line is now owned by Digital Safety Technologies, although it is unclear if they are maintaining the cameras.

 

These are IP-based cameras.

Interesting, I wonder if that company still honors any existing warranty that the MTA has? They should get those cameras to work, at least on the 5000s-5204.

 

Integrian did declare bankruptcy, which probably voids the warranty.
