Port Authority of Allegheny County will conduct a law enforcement training exercise on Thursday that will bring an increased police presence at transit stations, officials said.

Riders may see more police officers, first responders and Transportation Security Administration officials in the morning. No delays or impact on the transit service is expected, Port Authority officials said.

The security exercise is being led by the TSA's Mass Transit and Passenger Rail Division and will involve multiple security organizations. Port Authority's transit system is serving as a test location.
