Maryland Transit Authority Now Recording Bus Passengers Conversations
The Maryland Transit Administration says it has begun recording conversations between bus drivers and passengers as a security measure that critics are calling a privacy invasion.

The Baltimore Sun reported in its Thursday edition that that audio recording began on 10 buses in Baltimore this week, supplementing video cameras that have been in place for years. Signs tell riders they are being recorded.

MTA Administrator Ralign Wells said the agency expects to expand audio recording to 340 buses, about half the fleet, by next summer.

Re: Maryland Transit Authority Now Recording Bus Passengers Conversations
Even though I find this deplorable, how much expectation of privacy do we have on public transportation?

That shithole city has devolved into a small
oasis by the harbor, surrounded by a jungle
more dangerous than deepest darkest Africa.

They should give the bus drivers AR 15's
not tape recorders.

Seattle metro audio and video records and has surprise/random checks by metro "Fair Security" to make sure you paid. the security wear bullet proof vests. It sucks that this has to be done but it really has to be done. The majority of people are not the problem. The problem is the minority who voted Obama and expects a free ride while you wipe his ass and pay his way and if you don't or if you complain then you must be racist.

It is time for America to have a "Golden Dawn" as well.

In defense of their recent security policy the MTA has made public a recent recording that is says Justifies their new security measure.

It's just conversations between the driver and passengers for the drivers safety. Not sure many people are aware of just how dangerous buses are in Baltimore City.

Re: Maryland Transit Authority Now Recording Bus Passengers Conversations
This. Years ago even before the recession hit I was living in Downtown. Gang beatings and stabbings of white people on the buses were an EPIDEMIC. At the time I believe Baltimore was the murder capital of the U.S and things have definitely not gotten any better since I left thats for sure..You couldn't pay me enough to drive a bus through some of those areas.

The city should be quarantined.

Clarity for investigations to see who said what I would assume. I'm all about privacy but I don't think there is any reason to believe you have a right to privacy not only while in a public domain but while riding on a public provided service. It's like saying you have a right not to be recorded in The Pentagon, a courthouse or any other public building.
