Leaving aside the question of what security precautions should be in place ideally, if this is the level of coordination fail that's going on then it's just going to be a complete mess. In other words, it isn't really about security. It rarely is. I just don't know what it's really about.
On Thursday, the federal agency issued an unusual release denying that it dictated SEPTA limits on rail service for that weekend or that it had ordered Philadelphia businesses to shut down.

The blame game continued Friday afternoon, with SEPTA challenging the Secret Service, saying it had no choice but to shut stations rather than comply with unworkable security rules.

Ridiculous and incompetent. That's how you make things secure!
