New York MTA to Deploy Automated Bus Lane Enforcement Cameras

New York’s Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA) has awarded a contract to Hayden AI to install 300 interior mounted Automated Bus Lane Enforcement (ABLE) camera systems.

This agreement also comes with the option to deploy an additional 200 ABLE systems in the future.

ABLE is an effective means of increasing motorists’ compliance with bus lane restrictions to help operators deliver efficient and reliable bus services.

Indeed, upon previously deploying automated enforcement, MTA recorded a 17 percent increase in speed along the dedicated bus lanes. The large scale rollout of this technology is therefore in line with the MTA’s plans to improve bus services in New York.

Illegally parked and stopped vehicles in bus lanes force buses into general purpose lanes, resulting in decreased speeds and less on-time arrivals
Hayden AI CEO Chris Carson said:

“We are very proud to partner with MTA on this exciting transit bus mobility initiative. Ensuring that bus lanes are free from illegally parked vehicles means that thousands of riders will experience faster, smoother, and safer transit trips. We appreciate the opportunity to deploy our technology as we help to enhance the ridership experience for all MTA transit bus passengers.”

To deploy this system, Hayden AI will install an AI-powered camera system and an edge processor within MTA transit buses. The camera will observe bus lanes for potential violations such as parked cars, and the edge processor will then analyse the information in real-time and prompt the system to capture the vehicle license plate and location data.

Installation of the first 300 interior mounted ABLE cameras has started and is expected to be completed by the end of December 2022.
