Security on metro transportation increased

NEW YORK – In the wake of the terror attack in Manhattan on Tuesday in which eight people were killed and a dozen others injured, the MTA has increased its patrols and surveillance in order to provide protection across all of its agencies. The MTA Police Department has beefed up its uniformed and plainclothes presence at Grand Central Terminal and Penn Station as well as other major stations throughout the Metro-North Railroad network.

That railroad has two west of Hudson lines three east of the Hudson.

The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey Police are on heightened alert at all its facilities including the New York City metropolitan airports. The agency also operates Stewart Airport near Newburgh, which is patrolled by the State Police.
