We also support, fund, and help coordinate, strategies, and services that will increase the security of the transportation system, from security measures for buses and transit stops to technologies to enhance cybersecurity.
Security measures for transit providers include selecting and designing safe transit stop locations, such as providing adequate lighting and security staff when appropriate, as well as placing cameras and other security features on buses.
In addition, physical security measures, such as fences, lighting, and alarm systems enhance security throughout the transportation system, protecting both the users and the infrastructure itself from vandalism, destruction, or damage.
Technologies such as navigation systems in our vehicles to eventual self-driving cars can help improve both the function and safety of the transportation system, but they also pose cybersecurity risks. COMPASS works closely with its members to prevent cyber-attacks to help ensure our transportation system remains safe and secure for all users.
