Zalud’s Blog just found out that Apollo Video Technology has been selected by Williamsburg Area Transport of Virginia to supply and install on-board video surveillance systems on its regional bus fleet.


Beginning in November, Apollo Video’s RoadRunner systems will be installed among all 21 buses of the Williamsburg Area Transport (WAT) fleet. Each vehicle will be equipped with six digital color, audio and video recording cameras. 


The system will enable WAT to monitor the safe boarding, riding and disembarkation of passengers both inside and outside of its buses as well as help the agency deter fraudulent claims. Apollo Video Technology will also provide training for WAT personnel operating the system.


WAT serves James City County, the City of Williamsburg, the Bruton District of York County, and the College of William and Mary, with connections to Newport News and Surry County, Virginia. 


“The RoadRunner system will provide Williamsburg Area Transit with years of reliable service and exceptional video quality,” said Rodell Notbohm, General Manager of Apollo Video Technology. “With ever-increasing concerns in transit for safety and security, we are receiving positive feedback from the transit operators and passengers alike.”


Members of the Southeastern Virginia Governmental Purchasing Cooperative, other public bodies, governmental jurisdictions and school divisions may also purchase similar Apollo Video surveillance systems under the terms of Williamsburg Area Transport’s contract with Apollo Video Technology.
