NEW YORK CITY — New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio emerged from the depths of the nation's largest transit system Thursday to assure commuters that trains are safe in the wake of reports of an ISIS terrorist plot against U.S. subways, CNN reported.

"I have a simple message for all New Yorkers: There is no immediate credible threat to our subway system," de Blasio told reporters after taking a short subway ride from City Hall to Union Square in Manhattan. "I say that with confidence. People should go about their business as they normally would."

Intelligence and law enforcement agencies have no indications of an ISIS terror plot against U.S. transit systems, two U.S. law enforcement officials told CNN earlier.
