Since I became a Sydneysider, trains have been my mainstay.Here you have to ‘tap o and tap off’ to access it.
I once a young person jump the barrier. No judgement here,I have evaded the fare once myself, in fact today, merely because I was in a rush.
But I had no idea a large swathw of young people in Sydney are in juvenille justice for fare evasion. I wonder about the loss to society, through the adverse experiences that being in a youth holding faciciliy brings, and I ask: could a developed country not find a better way of dealing with youth who jump barriers?
