Ride Free Area And The Back Door

Seattle Metro's Ride Free Area isn't long for this world (it's done in October of 2012), but that doesn't mean it's not troublesome now. Technically, it's only in effect between 6 am and 7 pm everyday, which means after hours people cause some problems when they try to skip out on fares. STB's got a story on how to make people actually pay for them, use the back door in general, and speed up routes by not congesting the front of the bus. If only it was that simple, right? [STB]
