Closed Circuit Televisions (surveillance cameras) are installed on all buses and LRT cars, in all LRT stations, major transit centres and some city pedways. ETS security personnel continuously monitor the cameras to help ensure the safety and security of our passengers and the general public. When an emergency communication device on ETS property is activated, a surveillance camera will automatically monitor the area. This provides ETS security personnel visual contact with the person requesting assistance and helps in assessing the nature of the emergency.
For your safety and security, various surveillance and emergency communication equipment is installed throughout the Edmonton Transit Service, including transit centres and other facilities, buses, trains, and LRT stations. The collection of recorded camera images is authorized under Section 33(c) of the Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act (FOIP).
