Hayden AI has signed a contract with New York Metropolitan Transit Authority (MTA) to deploy 300 interior-mounted automated bus lane enforcement (ABLE) camera systems.

The installation has started and is expected to be completed by the end of December, with the aim of helping to increase compliance with dedicated bus lane stopping and parking restrictions.

The specialist in smart traffic enforcement powered by artificial intelligence says the agreement comes with an option to install as many as 200 additional camera systems upon MTA request.

“Ensuring that bus lanes are free from illegally parked vehicles means that thousands of riders will experience faster, smoother, and safer transit trips," says Hayden AI CEO Chris Carson.

"We appreciate the opportunity to deploy our technology as we help to enhance the ridership experience for all MTA transit bus passengers.” 

Syed Rahman, vice president transit at Hayden AI, says the technology can "reduce congestion, improve commuter safety, fleet reliability and on-time performance”.
