It Is an Offense!
In the past week or so, the SkyTrain electronic message boards have supplemented their typical elevator outages and trivia answers (I still maintain the same knack for never ever seeing the initial questions, so for all I know the answers are all that are displayed) and so on with new warnings something to the tune of the following:
“It is an offense to buy a transfer or pass from anyone other than a vending machine or other authorized dealer. It is also an offense to give your used transfer or pass to any other person.”
Nothing anyone didn’t already know, really, but it’s interesting to suddenly have the stern warning.
I never can figure out the patterns of SkyTrain fare enforcement in general, but after literally months of seeing no one checking tickets, I’ve noticed police and TransLink staff checking tickets probably five times in the past two weeks. Bigger crackdown on fare cheating?
