Security is lax at the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey Bus Terminal and on a train that links JFK International Airport to other ground transportation, the president of the Port Authority police union said.

Paul Nunziato, president of the Port Authority PBA, told the agency's commissioners on Tuesday that cars can enter the loading area of the world's largest bus terminal unchecked. He said the Airtrain linking the New York City subway and JFK does not have an officer assigned to it most days, despite internal security reports that recommend a security presence on the train. And he pointed to police radios that do not function at JFK International and said some on the agency's emergency response team have expired bulletproof vests.
