Bag Checking To Expand Monday

Starting Monday, not even New Jersey-ites will be safe from the prying hands of the Inspector. (Though we made it all the way from Brooklyn this morning without encountering a single cop. We should have used Grand Central!)

From a Port Authority press release:

“On PATH, searches will be conducted before travelers reach the fare collection area, and travelers not wishing to participate will not be allowed to enter the PATH system. At the bus terminal, checks will be made at the passenger gates, and travelers not wishing to participate will be asked to leave the bus terminal. On the AirTrain systems, checks will be made at the fare gates, and travelers not wishing to participate will not be allowed to enter the AirTrain systems. These actions will supplement police protocols at these facilities.”
