The Massachusetts Bay Transit Authority ran without significant disruption Tuesday, with cooperation from customers and strong support from law enforcement, officials said.

There have been no reports of suspicious activity on the MBTA a day after the Boston Marathon bombings, according to MBTA spokesman Joe Pesaturo.

"Transit police, with strong support from federal, state and local law enforcement personnel, are performing random baggage checks throughout the transit system. Customers have been very cooperative, and we greatly appreciate their patience and understanding," Pesaturo said.

"MBTA personnel and transit police, in partnership with the National Guard and other law enforcement agencies, are working side-by-side to maintain a safe and secure transit environment. "

Copley Station remain closed because of its proximity to the crime scene. There is no word yet on when it will reopen.
