PRTC HEIGHTENS SECURITY OVER HOLIDAYS
PRTC will implement heightened security measures on all buses and at the PRTC Transit Center from Friday, December 21 through Tuesday, January 1 based on a special recommendation from the Transportation Security Administration (TSA).
The TSA recommendation is not in response to a specific threat but rather a heightened sense of awareness in Mass Transit, Passenger Rail and overall transportation enterprise.
What does this mean for our passengers? You may notice bus operators being especially mindful of the surroundings and of any packages and bags that are on or near the buses. We ask for your assistance by not leaving any personal belongings unattended at bus stops or on board your bus. In addition, there will be increased security patrols at the PRTC Transit Center.
If you notice unattended property or see something suspicious, please notify your bus operator, local law enforcement, or call 911. Remember: If you see something, say something!
