SEPTA starts fining fare jumpers

As of Sunday, SEPTA has implemented an enforcement unit to catch habitual fare jumpers. If caught not paying, offenders will be fined $100, though when court fees are added in, it rises to $300. 

“What we are going to be doing is looking at complaints that come in throughout the system,” SEPTA Director of Media Relations Jerria Williams told the Delco Times.

Officers will be both undercover and in uniform and will be deployed where needed.
