The MBTA reports Transit Police have issued 3,614 citations so far this year for fare evasion - up 59% from the 2,268 issued in the same period last year.
The T adds that some 89 of those people left the stations where they were snagged in the back seat of a cruiser, after officers realized they were wanted for arrestable offenses. The two latest were arrested yesterday at the Quincy Center stop on the Red Line - one of them a guy who'd allegedly skipped out on a court hearing after he was busted for selling marijuana at the same station in August.
