Metro Fare Dodgers Pay Heavy Price for Cheating
More Metro cheats have been named and shamed as travel chiefs continue their battle to crack down on fare evaders.
Inspectors working for Metro operator Nexus caught 287 people riding the system without a valid ticket in January.
The 287 came from across Tyne Wear and appeared before courts in the region where they faced fines and costs. In total, they were ordered to pay pounds 37,465 in fines and costs, and their names will now be placed on the official name and shame lists.
