PITTSBURGH (KDKA) – If you take the bus or T to work, you may notice increased security at your stop today.

The Port Authority is warning riders that they may see an increase in police. However, little information was released about where they may be.

The Port Authority said today they are working on a joint training exercise with the Transportation Security administration, which will include TSA agents, Port Authority Police and first responders.

The transit system is serving as the test location and is being led by the TSA Mass Transit and Passenger Rail Division, which aims to advance security by detecting and preventing any threats or attacks.

The Port Authority said they do not expect the training exercise to impact commute time or any of the service.
