Greater Boston’s Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority extends video surveillance on buses and provides access to multiple agencies to enhance mass transit and public safety
Many people know the city of Boston for its historical implication in the onset of American liberty; yet, many are unaware Boston is also the birthplace of American mass transportation. It all began with a fa mily-operated ferry service in 1631 which served to lessen the travel time between the Boston peninsula and other parts of the mainland.
Today, the Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority, often referred to as the MBTA, operates a massive fleet of sophisticated vehicles including buses, subways, commuter rails and ferries in the greater Boston area.
