Closed Circuit Televisions (surveillance cameras) are installed 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 customers.
When an emergency communication device on ETS property (e.g. help phone, emergency button, etc.) is activated, an alarm relay automatically directs a surveillance camera to monitor the area. This provides ETS security personnel with visual contact with the individual requesting assistance for their safety and to aid 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).
