Free fares for fellas threatens New York subways with ruin. A new podcast from Colin Flaherty.

Three years ago, New York stopped writing tickets for people who evaded fares on the subways.

People in the district attorney’s office and the subway authority were very explicit: 93 percent of the fare evaders were black or brown and that is not fair. So let’s just stop trying to catch people who do it.

Fare evasion exploded from 3 percent to at least 20 percent of riders. Costing the city millions of a dollars a week.

Today’s news carries this gem: The New York city subways are going to need $12 billion to stay afloat.

And now the same people who gave away free rides are wondering where the money went and how they are going to get some more.
