WESTCHESTER, N.Y. – The Westchester Bee-Line bus system was recently selected as one of 16 mass transit agencies in the U.S. to be awarded a Gold Standard rating by the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) for its commitment to building a strong security system.
This past spring, the public was reminded to report suspicious packages or behavior in the “See Something, Say Something” campaign, known as “Bee-Aware.”
"We have worked to make sure our Bee-Line is safe for all, and we continue to improve our security through programs such as our 'See Something, Say Something' campaign, our most recent initiative,” Astorino said in a statement. “We are pleased to have been recognized."
The Gold Standard award is given to mass transit agencies that meet specific security requirements set by the TSA, the county said. The Bee-Line system was reviewed and attained high scores across all categories, the county announced.
