Government requires ID for transit workers

Posted on August 27, 2002

The Transportation Security Administration is developing a mandatory identification card for every transit worker with access to secure areas of the nation's transportation system, reported the Associated Press. "This is our top issue, and we are going to be making serious progress on it soon," said Elaine Charney, branch chief of transportation infrastructure for the agency's maritime and land security division. The cards would likely use a form of biometric identification, taken from the user's eye, voice, palms or fingerprints, said the AP. Currently it appears that "higher-risk transportation workers" such as those in secure zones at airports and those handling hazardous cargo would be required to get the cards, said Charney.
