AC Transit plans to use artificial intelligence cameras mounted on buses to catch drivers who illegally park in bus-only lanes, with the primary goal of ensuring the safety of riders, particularly elderly and ADA riders, during boarding and exiting processes. The cameras, developed by Hayden AI, automatically detect violations and generate evidence packages sent to the police, potentially improving the timeliness of bus operations. The implementation of these AI cameras is made possible by new state laws that allow transit agencies to use cameras and AI technology for traffic law enforcement.
