Jumping Turnstiles Is Cost Effective, Even With Fines

By - Thursday, July 28th, 2011

{image-2} A recent MTA study shows that those who hop the turnstiles regularly end up saving money in the long run. On average, “A routine subway-fare scofflaw can expect to get hit with a $100 fine every six to 13 weeks.” Even with the fine, fare-beaters would save at least $62. Police commissioner and mayoral prospect, Ray Kelly, has since publicly approved of a fine increase to help leverage the disparity. Doubt it’ll curb turnstiles because while unemployment climbs among the youth and adults, it will only be more and more difficult to make ends meet. But its nice to see exactly how much money my youth mentality has saved me throughout the years. via Daily News
