May 11, 2008 – 6:44pm
WASHINGTON– If you ride the bus in Prince William County, you may notice tighter security Monday.
Potomac and Rappahannock Transportation Commission, the agency, that operates buses in Prince William, Manassas and Manassas Park has been on heightened alert since Saturday night.
Police say they received a call from somebody who made threatening references to the buses and the President of the United States. The caller mentioned something happening on Monday.
“Although the threat was non-specific and the police described the call as kind of rambling it did specifically mention PRTC buses,” says Christine Rodrigo of the agency.
She says the agency and police are taking the threat very seriously.
PRTC averages almost a daily ridership of 7,279 on its commuter bus services and an average daily ridership of 3,700 on its weekday local bus services.
Officials say bus services will operate as normal on Monday.
Police will be at the main transit center and bus drivers have been told to be extra observant on their routes tomorrow.
