NYC Transit Agency Implements New Security Plan

August 25, 2005  | 

The Metropolitan Transportation Authority has announced plans to implement a $200 million security system that would use closed-circuit cameras and motion detectors to monitor the city’s subway, bus, and commuter lines for possible terrorist attacks.

Installation has already begun and is expected to be completed in the next three years.

The security system, which will be created by Lockheed Martin Corp., will cover platforms, stations, and terminals, as well as tunnels and bridges. No monitoring equipment will be installed inside train cars or buses.

Although the MTA had already initiated a nearly $600 million counterterrorism security plan in 2002 following 9/11, it seems it took the deadly terrorist bomb attacks in London six weeks ago to push the agency to commit to spending a significant amount of the earmarked money for transit security.
