Christie announced Wednesday that $29.1 million was set aside to install the 360-degree cams on 2,500 NJ Transit buses. New buses will come with the technology built in while older buses will be retrofitted, Christie said.

"The cameras will be mounted on all sides of the bus and the driver will then have a screen in their bus that will allow them to see all around the bus as they're operating it and the blind spots that exist," Christie said in video provided by the governor's office.

The safety measure protects people on and off the bus. "What this is going to do is provide greater safety -- first and foremost for the driver and the passengers -- but also, as I said, for the people around them," Christie said.

The “bird’s-eye-view” safety measure will be implemented starting in Fiscal Year 2018, Christie said.
