I broke a rule. I’m only a little afraid. I think I can get out of the $400 file if this go train ride happens to check tickets. On all my ridrs do far, nobody has.
However I may have paid for this one twice, just to be sure. I may not have enough for the high fare but I put in some effort and activated a $10 day pass I’d bought and not used in October.
It was quite a few techy steps involving connecting remotely to my home computer, search my email, testing 3 that had been used and then activating it for this trip.
Technically I did it too late. I did it while on the train rather than 5 minutes before. A technical need that might just be to avoid people activating it when they see a ticket checker approaching from the end of the train car.
A $400 fine is hefty because they do t check tickets often so a lot of people don’t pay. Well, a few. I’ve seen them catch two people, and one was two seats from me. I hadn’t paid but he never got to me as the man before me was escorted off at the next station.
My error was innocent but the kind of mistake people claim to get free rides so they may not have believed me. I learned how to do it, and always paid. It’s $10 unlimited travel for one day.
I am going home with $9.60 so I would not have been able to buy a ticket. Having one hidden in October paperwork was a bit of a challenge.
If they ask, I’ll just say I got on at the last stop. 8m paid up.
The problem is I also clicked Presto so it may try to bill the the $30 price. Or more. Oops.
The cost of tracing without sleep while very high. I al.ost missed the train.
