Transportation Security Overview | Homeland Security

The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) was created in the wake of 9/11 to strengthen the security of the nation’s transportation systems while ensuring the freedom of movement for people and commerce. Within a year, TSA assumed responsibility for security at the nation’s airports and deployed a federal workforce to screen all commercial airline passengers and baggage.

TSA now vets 100 percent of all passengers into, out of, and within the United States through TSA’s Secure Flight program. We use the latest technology to stay ahead of evolving threats, and continuing our efforts to screen 100 percent of cargo, regardless of where or how it is moving.

Improving Security Through Layered, Risk Based Approach

TSA employs a layered, risk-based approach to secure U.S. transportation systems, working closely with stakeholders in aviation, rail, transit, highway, and pipeline sectors, as well as the partners in the law enforcement and intelligence community. The agency

How to Get From Newark Airport to Manhattan

Newark Liberty International Airport

Address
3 Brewster Rd, Newark, NJ 07114, USA

Phone


+1 973-961-6000

If you’ve never been to New York City, you might think that flying into a different state is unnecessarily far. But Newark Liberty International Airport (EWR), located in New Jersey, is just a stone’s throw away from Manhattan across the Hudson River and you can reach most parts of the city just as quickly—if not faster—than if you were coming from JFK Airport or LaGuardia Airport.

Newark Airport is 18 miles from Midtown Manhattan, and taking a taxi into the city from New Jersey is usually more expensive than taking a taxi from JFK or LaGuardia airports. Many travelers find the most convenient option to be taking the train directly from the airport to Penn Station in New York, which is affordable and takes less than 30 minutes. Airport buses and shuttles

Hybrid bicycle – Wikipedia

Hybrid bicycles blend characteristics from more specialized road bikes, touring bikes and mountain bikes.[1] The resulting “hybrid” is a general-purpose bike that can tolerate a wide range of riding conditions and applications. Their stability, comfort and ease of use make them popular with novice cyclists, casual riders, commuters, and children.

Hybrids typically borrow the flat, straight handlebars and upright seating posture of a mountain bike, which many bicyclists find comfortable and intuitive. Hybrids also employ the lighter weight, thinner wheels and smooth tires of road bikes, allowing for greater speed and less exertion when riding on the road. Hybrid bikes often have places to mount racks and bags for transporting belongings, much like a touring bike.

Hybrid bikes have spawned numerous sub-categories satisfying diverse ridership. They are classified by their design priorities, such as those optimized for comfort or fitness — and those offered as city, cross or commuter
