MTA Maryland is listening

Recommended Posts

[float=left]post-5097-0-83443000-1352224128_thumb.jpg[/float]The unblinking eye of the camera is increasingly all around us. On the street corner, inside the convenience store, in office building lobbies — not to mention in the hands of everyone with a cellphone.

But while there is a good conversation to be had about the slippery slope of lost privacy in Baltimore and elsewhere, this doesn't appear to be the place to draw the line.

I wouldn't care. It's not like they have the time to listen to the bullshit from every rider, nor would I see the purpose of doing so.

can't wait to see the benefits I hope they do it on their commuter lines as they are the only means of transit service for many areas to reach DC I hope those get boosted service hour spans beyond rush hour. I use MTA maryland routes every time I visit the people need better connections and fast service. They also need a fast transit alternative to the I-695 disaster it's baltimore's version of the gonowhere.

All the MTA will hear is a voice unless the objective is to match the voice with the person on a survelliance camera.
