“There’s a reminder today from federal officials that rail and transit systems can be vulnerable to terrorist attacks.

The reminder is being sent out to law enforcement around the country.

The FBI and the Homeland Security Department warn that improvised explosive devices are the most common method used to blow up mass transit and rail systems overseas.

Officials are recommending that transit system security officials conduct random sweeps at terminals and stations, and that police make random patrols and board some trains and buses.”
