Norfolk light rail: Pay to ride or face a fine

Monday - 1/14/2013, 11:53am  ET

NORFOLK, Va. - Hampton Roads Transit issued more than 1,000 warnings and summonses last year to people caught riding Norfolk's light rail system without paying.

Tom Holden with the transit agency tells WAVY-TV ( that fare inspectors check riders every day to make sure they're paying. He says most customers are law-abiding and they pay for their rides.

Those caught without paying face a higher cost than the price of a ticket. They could be fined $250 and charged with a misdemeanor.
