SAN DIEGO (CNS) - The Metropolitan Transit System reached out to riders Thursday to raise awareness about the transportation agency's new security measures.

MTS CEO Paul Jablonski, system Police Chief Manny Guaderrama and security officers attended the event at the Old Town Transit Center on Taylor St. 

Among the new security measures, MTS will deploy new train teams that patrol three to four stations at a time, MTS officials said.

At the morning meet-and-greet, the officials discussed MTS' 24/7 call and text security hotline, station and vehicle video surveillance systems and officer body cameras.

The new security measures are intended to triple MTS' security coverage, officials said.
