ok, so why was my ticket voided than? if that was the real reason, they could have made that as an excuse prior to voiding my ticket. I know i am certainly lucky for getting off with a voided ticket, but i don't think that is the legal case here. It is not written under any rules, i don't see it written or stated anywhere, it just rises from what people think is the morally right thing to do. But legality wise, my ticket was voided so i personally don't think i did anything wrong. w.e I'm done. im glad i opened up a somewhat hot debate to detect some real moral citizens on revscene! police are always right, make sure you report yourselves too if you go past 5km/h over the speed limit as well!

Transit system here is a joke, I still can't believe its 2013 and we still don't have fare gates... FFS all this shit would not happen and we don't have to pay so much money to useless officers standing around at the skytrain station for checking tickets.

Thats not true.
The last time the machine was broken on main street, the attendant said. Don't worry about it, and wrote me a free fare from his book. It happens all the time, just make sure you have written proof. That being said, if the attendant said, "don't worry about it" without alluding to the idea of buying one next stop its absolutely fucking retarded to think the average person would think to get off and buy a ticket and get back on.

Yes, because trying to fight for a ticket that i didn't deserve and in the end which the ticket did get voided because i had a reasonable cause was certainly being a "tool about it" right?

I was on my way to SFU once and my purse was stolen when switching at Columbia (along with my U-Pass). I was writing a final, so I needed to keep going. At Braid we ticked checked and asked to get off the train...I explained everything, but still was issued a ticket. The officer said that once I had "proof" my purse was stolen, the ticket would be waive. I did just that.

Some times, if you have an honest and legitimate story to go along with why you don't have a ticket, it is better to contest it rather than fight with the officer on site.
how long ago was that? did your dispute get handled by the old system (provincial court) or the current system (translink arbitrator)?

Try using transit in Kelowna, Kamloops or Salmon Arm. I'll guarantee you'll worship the ground every Translink official walks on after trying to use one of these systems.

LOL such an absurd comparison. That's like me saying try getting around on a rickshaw in India, you'll never complain about the Transit system in the Lower Mainland ever again.

I know.

The fact is that Translink really isn't as bad as people make it out to be. The two most common complaints are that there's either not enough buses or that we pay too much already when they're asking for more money to expand services.

Can't have one without the other.

I've used Translink's transit services for many years, usually during rush hour, and I've only had to wait for a bus that wasn't full maybe half a dozen times. Considering that was on Commercial Drive, it wasn't too surprising.

Lol that's like comparing Kelowna, Kamloops, Salmon Arm transit with a bus in Fort Nelson.

Tbh, I barely remember....I am showing my age here, but it was almost 10 years ago so it was the old system. I remember having to provide my police incident report and my affidavits for my stolen (and used) credit cards.

So it appears theres alot of judgypants bitches here failing away expecting you to jump on the train then get off at the next stop run down the platform thru a fare payed zone where you can still get stopped and ticketed for non payment then pay for a ticket cus its the right thing to do then run back up the platform and stand and wait for the next train clock still tickin away on your night then get back on the train and proceed with your night.
Thats stupid, the machine was out of order you were told to carry on dont worry about it and then when confronted about it by the transit hogs they were to lazy to do a simple follow up that they are payed to do.
Lesson learned tho, that sucks, take pics next time cus the lawman isnt here to protect you just find ways to tax you and more shitty is the number of people that think thats ok.

without proper id, you cannot prove who you are. they can detain you until they are satisfied with your ID. And when they find out you gave them a bs name you will be lucky all you end up with is a VT for fare evasion. No normal person leaves all id/wallet at home. That combined with not paying for a fare is grounds to detain you. Don't forget, they are paid to be there. It's your time you are wasting.
