With the events that occurred on a subway line in St. Petersburg, Russia, early Monday, the Metro Vancouver Transit Police across says it will be more vigilant.
Spokesperson Anne Drennan says commuters can expect to see more officers patrolling.
“You’ll see them wearing their high-visibility reflective vests when on patrol in any of the transit areas, so, particularly, platforms, stations, buses, that kind of thing.”
There will also be an extra explosive sniffing dog on for the day.
Drennan says this is a normal precaution when there is any kind of transit incident, anywhere.
“We have absolutely no information that would indicate that there are any threats here currently, locally.”
At least ten people were killed, and about 50 others injured after a bomb ripped through a subway car.
Police are said to be looking for two suspects in the incident.
