NJ Transit ramps up security following NYC subway threat

The threat hit too close to home for New Jersey Transit, which operates trains into Manhattan. The agency has doubled police patrols and partnered with New Jersey state troopers to monitor stations, terminals and trains.

The agency also added more than two dozen K-9 explosive detection teams to its full K-9 unit and conducted random baggage checks.
