According to the police, three subway lines - the A, C and E - were evacuated as a result of the blast.

Commuter Robin Danzy told ABC News she "was about to come down into the train station" at the time. "I just thought, not another situation again".

The explosion triggered a massive emergency response by police and fire both above and below ground, tangling subway and bus service at the nearby Port Authority bus terminal.

"Nothing is going to change", she said.

"It was pretty scary", Oquendo said. And you hopefully have a strong belief in the man upstairs.

On Monday morning, authorities responded to what appears to be a detonation near Port Authority bus terminal in Times Square.

With 6 million riders a day, NYPD Counterterrorism Chief James Waters told ABC News the subway system is safe and he vowed it would stay that way.

- Ullah held a New York City Taxi and Limousine Commission for-hire vehicle driver's license from March 2012 through March 2015, NYC TLC Deputy Commissioner for Public Affairs Allan J. Fromberg said in a statement to CNN.

Akayed Ullah was taken into custody on Sunday.

The incident was captured on security video, the police said.

One New Yorker at the scene, John Frank, said that the blast was strong enough to be felt through the sidewalk.

On October 30, a man drove his rented truck down a cycle path along the Hudson River, killing eight and injuring 11 others.

"The terrorists will not win", he said.

"We are targeted by those whose poisoned minds think that killing innocent Americans here in this city will somehow advance their twisted ideology", he said. There are no additional known activities or "known credible threats" at this time, Mayor Bill De Blasio said.

Governor Andrew Cuomo said a bomb in the NY subway was "one of our worst nightmares" but that the reality of the attack was that it was an "effectively low-tech device". "Let us get back to work". We will never allow them to disrupt us.

Numerous reports indicated that the bomb may have exploded prematurely, and New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio said Ullah "did not achieve his ultimate goals".

"The right cops were in the right place this morning", Port Authority Patrolman Benevolent Association President Paul Nunziato said.

"My daily commute is frequently through this bus station on the way to work", Johnson said. We'll move quickly to correct the record and we'll only point to the best information we have at the time.

"It's important in the face of an event like this", he said, "to show that terrorism can not prevail if people refuse to be terrorized".
