City authorities are boosting security throughout the transit network as New Yorkers return to the city’s crowded subway system days after the failed terror attack. While many commuters continue to feel uneasy following the attempted bombing, teams of police armed with rifles are keeping a watchful eye over the nation’s busiest public transportation system.
