Added note about verifying the counts with CCTV systems
Alternatively, CCTV cameras can be used together with intelligent people counters to log numbers of people getting on and off at each stop or station. These video passenger counting systems can be over 98% accurate.<ref>[ Automatically Counting Passengers], Retail Sensing, Retrieved 5 October 2015</ref>
With CCTV counting, operators can simply watch the video back - which shows both people getting on and off the vehicle together with the increasing counts - and thus verify that the system is counting properly.
The APC computer can also integrate with an on-board GPS system to link passenger data to vehicle location. This provides a wealth of data for agencies to analyze about the utilization of the system based on location, direction of travel, and time.
