As I’m sure many of you are aware, a man with a pipe bomb strapped to his body attacked the New York subway system on Monday. Thankfully, no one was killed with three riders suffering minor injuries.
A device to detect bombs and explosive devices is being tested this week at our busy 7th/Metro Station in downtown Los Angeles by the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) in partnership with Metro.
This is part of Metro’s ongoing effort to test different technologies that can improve safety on the system. In August, Metro tested a different type of explosive detection unit called Evolv at the west entrance to the Red/Purple Line at Union Station.
The TSA press release is posted below.
