San Diego-based SmartDrive Systems, a provider of driving safety and fuel management solutions, has been chosen to provide its comprehensive, video-based operator performance and safety program to the Utah Transit Authority (UTA) for its nearly 600 buses and paratransit vehicles.
The UTA chose SmartDrive following an evaluation of multiple vendors. By mid-2014, the UTA will begin using SmartDrive Safety in-vehicle recorders to capture video and vehicle data during its bus and paratransit vehicles’ daily routes. All recorded event clips will go through the SmartDrive Review Center where SmartDrive's specialists provide video analysis services including reviewing, scoring and prioritizing videos for coaching.
In addition to the UTA, 26 transit agencies across the U.S. have deployed the SmartDrive solution; customers include LA Metro, DART, Nassau County and Veolia Transportation. The SmartDrive Safety program has been installed on more than 10,000 transit vehicles in the past year, helping agencies to better protect vehicle operators and the public while lowering operational costs.
