NEW YORK CITY -- With the majority of Super Bowl ticket holders taking public transportation to the Sunday's game, the Transportation Security Administration is ramping up measures in an attempt to keep fans safe.

Bags will be checked before fans board trains headed to Met Life Stadium in New Jersey.

Earlier this week TSA agent patrolled New York and New Jersey train stations with radiological and nuclear weapon detectors.

Bill Hall, the Special Agent in Charge of the New York Field office of the Federal Air Marshal Service, said there have not been any specific threats made towards the Super Bowl.

"I don't want to worry about it," said Justyne Welch, an Olympia mother who brought her children to New York to see the game.

"I want to worry about winning the Super Bowl!" said Welch.
