MTA board to keep tabs on Staten Island fare evasion

Recommended Posts

STATEN ISLAND, N.Y. -- The fare evasion numbers will be regularly reported to the Metropolitan Transportation Authority Board of Directors in the coming months, but the board must decide how frequently those reports will be delivered.

 

 

Voting board member Allen Cappelli broached the subject during committee meetings held Monday, saying that whether the board hears the reports monthly or quarterly still needs to be decided.

 

 

These reports will "shine a spotlight on problem areas," Cappelli said. "And it should be useful in combating the fare evasion problem."

Good! I wonder how much the MTA loses in Staten Island. I've never rode a bus there though.

A LOT of money is lost over there.

I wish the (MTA) did this everywhere. This is not just a Staten Island problem. Fare evasion happens everywhere on the (MTA)'s system. I see it riding on the Q10 (especially at Metropolitan Avenue) a couple of mornings a month when the buses are really crowded. Maybe avoiding fare evasion bring millions more in revenue and result in avoiding more service cuts. :D
