Bus Driver beaten again

It seems a bus driver gets attacked at least once a week, It would be nice to see police on busses

Cameras

MOST buses have Cameras. Were they working? or was the MBTA Maintenance Department out to lunch again on this one?

Most of the Silver Line buses

By on

Most of the Silver Line buses do not have cameras, just the 3 most recent hybrid buses they got last year that are assigned to the Silver Line have them. The dual-mode buses used on the Silver Line Waterfront and the articulated CNG buses used on Silver Line Washington St. do not have cameras.

Several hundred of the non-Silver Line yellow buses do have cameras.

that just doesnt make sense

That just doesn't make sense. MBTA made a big deal about adding cameras to buses, yet doesnt add them to a route that goes into a 'bad' area of town?!?

Once again T logic doesn't prevail.

Cameras...

Don't stop attackers from bashing someone in the face with a pipe. Banks have cameras too, but people still rob them all the time.

Thanks, Captain Obvious.
Cameras help the police catch the d-bags after the fact and thus prevent future attacks.

Can you provide research

Can you provide research showing that surveillance cameras actually do lead to less crime?
