The MBTA and Massachusetts Bay Commuter Railroad Company are using technology to identify counterfeit commuter rail tickets and passes.
Random checks begun this week use a small, flashlight-like device that scans tickets and immediately finds the counterfeits. Acting MBTA GM William Mitchell says conductors have already found eight people trying to use counterfeit monthly passes or one-way tickets, including examples at left.
"We owe it to the vast majority of our customers who regularly pay their fares to expose the selfish behavior of those who feel they don't have to pay," says Mitchell.
