The MTA thanks our passengers and reminds them to:
•Be alert to unattended packages.
•Be wary of suspicious behavior.
And remember, if you see something, say something. Alert a police officer, train or bus operator, station personnel or call 888-NYC-SAFE (888-692-7233).

Blogger RFTR noticed an unattended package, left by a person running off a Metro-North train as the doors closed. When notified by a person sitting nearby, the conductor ignored the warning. 20 minutes later, RFTR notified the conductor and was told "don't worry; we'll put it in the Metro-North lost and found when we get to Grand Central—I know all about it."
