OmniRide and OmniLink buses to get increased security
The Potomac and Rappahannock Transportation Commission announced it will increase security measures on all buses and at the PRTC Transit Center from Thursday to Monday.
The increase in security is in response to a special recommendation from the Dept. of Homeland Security, but not in response to a specific threat.
Passengers may notice bus operators being especially mindful of the surroundings and of any packages and bags that are on or near the buses.
Anyone who sees anything suspicious is asked to contact the bus operator, local law enforcement, or call 911.
