Adesta to Upgrade San Francisco Transit Security

Adesta, a systems integrator and project management company for communication networks and electronic security systems, has been awarded a $5.9 million contract to upgrade security for the San Francisco Bay Area Rapid Transit District (BART).

The project, which is projected to be completed in early 2010, will take place in the cities of San Francisco and Oakland.

Adesta will implement a complex physical security device installation program in BART train stations. Nearly all the deployment activities will take place during night and weekend hours in order to avoid interrupting busy commuter schedules.

The project involves the installation of strategically located cameras, which will be connected to BART’s existing communications infrastructure. Upgrades will be made to several San Francisco and East Bay BART stations, as well as the Transbay Tube, which runs under the San Francisco Bay and carries half of BART’s 379,000 riders each workday.

“Adesta is honored to be able to bring our security expertise to a prestigious organization like BART,” says Adesta President Bob Sommerfeld “They are truly visionaries who have taken mass-transit to another level. We are confident that Adesta’s superior and unique ability, service and technology will help them remain on the forefront of safety for their commuters, and continue their cause of fast, reliable and safe transportation for Bay area residents and visitors.”
