Port Authority riders may notice an increased police, first responder and Transportation Security Administration presence at transit stations or stops on Thursday morning due to a training exercise, a spokeswoman said.

Delays are not expected, Heather Pharo said.

The transit system is the test location for the exercise being led by TSA's Mass Transit and Passenger Rail Division, she said. Multiple security agencies will be involved.
