Starting in January 2018, Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART) will deploy police and community service officers to perform proof-of-payment inspections within paid areas of stations and on trains. If requested by authorized BART personnel, riders must present a valid ticket or Clipper fare card anywhere within paid areas.The move is part of a larger strategy to curb fare evasion on the agency's system. Riders who don't pay fares cost the agency $15 million to $25 million each year, BART officials said in a press release. Nearly 75 percent of the agency's $578.8 million operating revenue comes from fares.Police will be authorized to issue $75 fines for first- or second-time violations in a year. The fine will be $55 for minors, who have the option to perform community service instead of paying the fine. BART will extend the same community-service option to low-income riders, as well.
