Re: Fare-cheaters cost MTA $14 MILLION a year; worst offenders are on Bx19

Posted by RailBus63 on Sun May 27 14:42:09 2012, in response to Fare-cheaters cost MTA $14 MILLION a year; worst offenders are on Bx19, posted by Gold_12TH on Sun May 27 13:01:27 2012.

The MTA has reviewed fare beating in the past and is now conducting a more comprehensive audit, said agency spokesman Adam Lisberg.

The most recent review showed bus riders took about 6.2 million free trips a year, costing the MTA about $14 million.


According to the MTA, combined ridership on NYCT and MTAB was 783,595,332 in 2011. There's no way that farebeaters constitute less than 1 percent of total riders.
