If I board the BM3 at say Ocean Avenue and Avenue W in Brooklyn, dump $2.75 in the farebox (instead of the $6.50 I'm supposed to pay for a trip I'm supposed to take to Manhattan), take a seat and get off a couple of miles later at Glenwood Road
Is the bus $6.50 flat fare, or is it $2.75 to Glenwood Road and $6.50 to Manhattan? If the fare to Glenwood Road is $2.75, then you only have to pay $2.75 to Glenwood Road. If the fare is $6.50 flat, then you have to pay $6.50 flat.
(a pick-up only stop in that direction, but hey, maybe the door will open to receive intending passengers)
Does the bus definitely stop there or are you just hoping it does?
I've paid for a local trip
If the fare is $6.50 flat, then you haven't paid for a local trip; a local trip is $6.50 because that's the fare regardless of destination.
and my coins were "accepted" at the box
Were they accepted by the driver? If you put $2.75 in the box and the driver, knowing you have paid $2.75 because you have made no effort to conceal the amount of your payment, indicates you are good to go, then you can't be arrested for theft of service.
