A $100 million plan to develop an anti-terrorism security program at the New York Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA) is underway.
MTA has hired four consulting firms to assess weaknesses and implement long-term anti-terrorism measures, according to the New York Post.
Recommendations from the consultants may include anything from the construction of additional command centers to the installation of updated video surveillance systems.
The Federal Emergency Management Agency last year awarded $591 million to MTA to be used for security programs. There is a 2006 deadline for a portion of the funds to be used.
