No Easy Pass for Transit Riders

Jeff Jones, Harold Stolper

Summary: Why are drivers who don’t pay treated so differently from transit users who don’t pay? In "No Easy Pass for Transit Riders" we look into the difference in penalty faced by transit users in NYC by transit type and find that subway and bus riders pay a significantly higher penalty for the inability to pay than those with personal vehicles. Part of the Criminalizing Poverty series.
