Advanced Translink Fare Evasion

When I hopped on the skytrain late Tuesday afternoon, I saw a young man purchasing a ticket from a young woman. That in and of itself was a bit strange since they were both already on the train. It's not the man was getting a cheap ticket to get past Skytrain Police doing gatekeeper duty.

What really got interesting was his explanation. He held up what looked like the receipt and based on what he said, I surmised that it was a Translink fine for fare evasion. He told her that now he'd have a ticket for the "travel period". The upshot of it was that he didn't have a ticket and got a fine. Now he was going to dispute the fine with supposed proof of having a fare which he would try to say he "couldn't find at the time".
