The St. Louis Metro Transit is stepping up security after the recent terrorist attack in Boston that left three dead and more than 150 injured.
Richard Zott, Chief of Public Safety for Metro says the changes aren’t due to any specific threat.
“No, I just think it’s prudent," Zott said. "Anytime you have something like a major bombing in a city like that, I just think it’s a good idea to just increase your vigilance and your security procedures. I just like to err on the side of caution.”
He says he’s working with the city and county police departments.
