    Hi, I'm wondering if anyone has had this happen to them or a friend and what were the consequence:

    What happens if you are busted using a fake annual bus pass? Do you have to go to court and then get a criminal record or just a fine?

    Please help.

    Faking is a worse idea than dodging.
    Someone recently got sentenced to a 7month suspended sentence and having to pay back all the money they saved.

    I was once cutting out the numbers and glueing them over outdated numbers till i got caught.

    Many bus drivers won't notice if you show them from afar.

    When i did get caught the Bus driver rang for police to be at one of the stops and wouldn't let me off so i pressed the emergency ecscape button and legged it! :yep:

    We beat up the bus driver (while he was stationary, we're not stupid), mugged all his money and smashed a couple of bus windows. This old lady tried to stop us but myself and 2 others held her down and gang raped her. I think she died. Also, there was this child of about 8 months who we stripped naked, took photos, then played catch with it along the bus but I dropped it and it stopped moving so we had to quit because it's no fun without screaming and crying. We then walked out, setting fire on of the seats near the front doors to the bus and pressed the door close button. We never got to see what happened after we left but I assumed it was pretty awesome. Fun times.

    Ahh, those were the days.

    It may be that you escape but you might also get caught on CTV and prosecuted. Do you think it is worth the risk of a criminal conviction.

    They cant Enhance the image like they do on CSI to see if the pass was fake or not.

    Oh an i stole a bus and killed the driver then did a poo in the bus then sent the bus back to the drivers grieving widow, and then stole it again!

    I didn't think they could do anything but kick you off the bus. Someone on my bus passed their pass out of the window of the bus to their friend who then used it to get on and was busted when an inspector got on. Whether it's different because they're students or not I don't know, but you could always just give them a fake address if they ask for one. It's no wonder people use fake bus passes anyway when some bus companies are being investigated by the competition commission.

    I photoshopped mega-rider bus passes for 1.5 years of college and I got away with it no problem. It's really easy to do too.
