SECAUCUS --Technology used to search for explosives during the 2014 Super Bowl is now being used by New Jersey Transit.

NJ Transit has started to screen rail passengers for explosives under a program run by the Transportation Security Administration.

The random screenings were conducted for the first time at the agency's Secaucus Junction rail station, according to a report by NJ.com.

Commuters aren't slowed down by the screenings because the equipment works as a passive device, monitoring body density as riders walk by, according to NJ.com.

A spokeswoman with the TSA told NJ.com NJ Transit is also partnering up with other mass transit agencies in the county to test the screening equipment.
