An enterprise-class video surveillance management and recording solution with full hybrid capabilities for bus and passenger rail operators.

8, 12, 16 and 20-channel Mobile Recording and Management Solution

Enhance passenger safety and reduce risk with the industry’s most reliable mobile network video recorder (NVR). The RideSafe GT Series Hybrid Transit NVR is purpose-built to withstand extreme shock and vibration, with a rugged, industry-recognized SAE J1455-standard design and a tamper-proof enclosure that also protects against dust and moisture. Its Linux-based operating system guards against hacks and viruses while its internal battery backup and hard drive mirroring functions provide additional recording redundancy. These robust NVRs are part of our complete RideSafe mobile solution for bus, para-transit and passenger rail operators.


  • 8, 12, 16, and 20-channel models
  • Hybrid support for mobile analog and IP cameras (8 analog channels; up to 20 IP channels)
  • Purpose-built to withstand harsh transit environments
  • Record at full 30 fps at D1 resolution across all channels simultaneously
  • Automated video and data extraction over Wi-Fi or 4G network

Increase passenger and operator safety on-board your urban transit buses with the March Networks® RideSafe™ GT Hybrid NVR. Available in 8, 12, 16, and 20-channel models, this true hybrid recording and management solution lets you capture everything that’s happening on the bus, inside and out. This plug-and-play recorder can operate as a standalone unit (programmable through embedded software), or be remotely managed and monitored daily (through March Networks Command™ for Transit VMS). It can integrate into your existing CAD and AVL systems and mobile routers, or it can operate independently. The recorder’s compact size, rugged design (including solid state electronics, integrated power supply, and battery backup), and wide range of interfaces and communications options will meet all of the mobility industry’s standards.

Key Benefits

▼ True hybrid recording. The recorder’s full hybrid capability lets you migrate from 100% analog to 100% IP video coverage at your own pace.

▼ Transit-tough. Able to withstand extreme and demanding continual loads, these embedded Linux-based recorders adhere to J1455 specifications, and provide IP65 protection from dust and moisture. They tolerate severe shock and vibration and have an advanced thermal design to ensure reliability.

▼ Front panel LEDs for easy diagnostics. LEDs convey information about the recorder in general, as well as operational, recording, and export status.

▼ Real-time health monitoring. Be alerted to camera, recorder and network issues within seconds.

▼ Vehicle metadata integration. Use your CAD and AVL systems to gather operator-initiated tagged events and vehicle data such as GPS, speed and heading, and incorporate that data into the recorder. An integrated accelerometer tags video for hard brakes and other incidents; this allows for re-enactment, driver monitoring and investigations.

▼ Powerful Video Management Software. With Command for Transit VMS, you are equipped with the features and tools you’ll need to easily manage your entire fleet as well as your fixed surveillance. Features include health monitoring, remote live video access, data logging/ search, fleet revision management, GPS mapping and more.

▼ Automated video and data extraction. Trigger automatic downloads, via Wi-Fi or 4G network, of critical video when the bus returns to the depot.
