Journal alleges lots of STM fare fraud

The Journal sent a journalist into the metro with a camera to record incidents of passengers getting in without paying and found a lot of examples. But the pictures showing people walking through the open plexi partition doesn’t prove anything – I’ve done that for convenience with a perfectly valid pass in my pocket.

What the Journal doesn’t get into is whether the cost (financial and social) of ramping up security to fight this kind of thing would be worth it.
