(NECN) - The final preparations are underway in the city of Boston this for Saturday’s Rolling Rally parade for the Red Sox World Series victory.
But before the players can step onto the duck boats, there's also a lot of work being done to make sure there's a smooth ride.

For more on the security and precautions the city is taking, we were joined by MBTA Transit Police Superintendent Joseph O'Connor.

He said the MBTA is increasing the amount of service for people who want to attend. He also recommends people to leave early to ensure they can make it.

O’Connor said there are always a small amount of people who act up, but there will be normally clothed and uniformed officers patrolling the parade route.

“We’re well prepared to handle the crowds,” he said.
