TSA screeners check passengers at 2 bus stops
You typically see them at the airport, but screeners from the Transportation Security Administration showed up Downtown on Thursday to check passengers at two city bus stops.
The agency, with cooperation from IndyGo, said its agents were checking for weapons as part of a general effort to ensure safety.
Security stations were set up at bus stops at Capitol Avenue and Market Street, and at Ohio and Meridian streets. Some passengers were patted down or submitted to having bags checked.
Passengers could decline to be checked. Those who did would not be turned away, a TSA official said, unless they otherwise appeared to be a security threat.
