In the wake of the Boston Marathon bombing, Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA) has heightened security and additional inspection of the MTA bus and rail system. 

“This senseless terrorist bombing that has claimed lives and injured many serves as a reminder to everyone to maintain a vigilant and dedicated security presence on our bus and rail systems,” said Los Angeles County Supervisor Michael Antonovich.

Antonovich is also chairman of the MetropolitanTransportation Authority.

“MTA and Metrolink are coordinating efforts to heighten security on our system and perform the necessary inspections to keep the public safe.” 

Riders on the MTA bus or rail system can take the following actions to alert authorities to suspicious activity: alert deputies or Metro personnel; press the emergency intercom in the stations or on the trains; inform bus operators or call the L.A. Sheriff's Dept. at 323-563-5000.
