ST. LOUIS — The Metro mass transit agency in St. Louis is tightening security in the wake of the bombings at the Boston Marathon.

KMOX Radio reported that Metro officials said in a Facebook post Monday night that bus and light rail passengers can expect to see increased vigilance and patrol. Any passengers who see something suspicious are urged to contact a Metro officer or call 911.
