New security technology to detect threats like explosive devices will be tested at PATH train stations over the next month.
The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, which operates the trans-Hudson River commuter train system, announced Monday that the pilot program will start June 10 and run through July 10.
The program will test passive millimeter wave technology, which can detect explosives hidden under clothing.
The Port Authority says all passengers entering a station where the testing is taking place will be tested, and anyone who does not want to be tested will have to use another station.
