It’s Bank Holiday today, in the UK, so this morning we took the kid to the zoo in Regent’s Park on the 205 bus. The bus we got was quite a new one, and right by the driver was a screen showing the feed from the sixteen CCTV cameras on this one bus. How much of that footage to they actually archive? For how long? And how much of it do they lose track of?
I suspect the point here is more the crazy number than anything else… Sixteen cameras to cover two forty foot compartments? Really?
We recently started getting them on buses in Toronto (admittedly single deck) and the number is something like four per vehicle. Ugh.
