Effective Friday the 12th of Aug DHS will lower the the threat level for mass transit portion of the transportation sector from Code Orange, (High) to Code Yellow (elevated)

These changes will be effective at 8:00 p.m. local time on Friday, August 12, following local rush hours across the country, at the discretion of state and local authorities. Concurrently, the Coast Guard will lower the Maritime Security level for large passenger ferries from level two to level one, which corresponds with Code Yellow.

Although the overall national threat level is being lowered for mass transit systems, many transit systems, particularly the larger systems, will maintain a strengthened baseline level of preparedness beyond what existed before the London attacks, including a number of the security enhancements that were put into place for the July alert. Additionally, individual transit systems should vary these security measures at any given time in order to make it more difficult to predict the security regime at any given location.

Unfortantely, I cannot give a reference url for this story because there isn't one. If a moderator contacts me I will share my source. I would also like to post the entire story instead of just a "snippet".
