Yes, I forgot about OMNI, since seniors still have metrocards.

Do inspectors have equipment to verify those paying by OMNY or do they make a mental note of those who entered without tapping?

The latter makes no sense. They are boarding a bus full of people who boarded at a prior stop.

Not sure about the former. If not, I guess people could dodge the fare by having an OMNI card but not actually bothering to tap in, and then just showing the card to the inspector. That seems a bit elaborate for the average fare dodger, but if it works I'm sure some of them have learned to do it.
