The GETD will be using Safety Vision’s Observer 4112 and the Observer 4120 hybrid video recorder (HVR) systems to provide video and audio surveillance over public transportation options. The hybrid recorders allow the user to incorporate both analog and high resolution IP cameras into the same system in order to conserve hard drive storage space, according to the company. GETD also purchased the complimentary Foresight PRO viewing software and Automatic Download System (ADS). Safety Vision also provided the GETD with wireless downloading equipment.

GETD was established in 1973 and provides fixed route and paratransit service for the Bakersfield Metropolitan area. The District operates 16 daily bus routes with approximately seven million annual boardings. GETD has an active fleet of 86 fixed route low floor transit buses plus 19 paratransit vehicles.
