Gov. Chris Christie announced that New Jersey Transit will be installing a new camera system to protect pedestrians, riders and motorists.

The new installment is part of the Transportation Trust Fund spending that contributes $2 billion annually into our state's transportation infrastructure.

Wednesday afternoon, Gov. Christie stressed that safety is the key goal of the state's Transportation Trust Fund projects, which is why he announced the installment of new 360-degree cameras on buses at New Jersey Transit's maintenance facility in Newark.

The camera system will be installed in 2,500 new and existing NJ Transit buses and will allow driver a 360-degree field of vision to eliminate blind spots and enhance pedestrian safety.

The announcement of an added safety feature for NJ Transit buses comes after months of delays and cancellations on the state's rail system due to an aging infrastructure.

New Jersey Transit says the new camera system will be installed on all of the 2,500 buses by September.
