U.S. Mass Transit on Orange Alert

July 08, 2005  | 

The United States government has upgraded the threat level from code yellow to code orange, or high risk of terrorist attack, for the nation’s mass transit system in response to the bomb attacks on London’s transit system yesterday that killed an estimated 50 people and injured 400.

According to the Department of Homeland Security Website, the alert “only includes regional and inter-city passenger rail, subways, and metropolitan bus systems.”

Protective measures being taken in the transportation sector include increased video surveillance and additional law enforcement presence, including more bomb-detecting K-9 teams.
