The Details

What you need

If you receive a bus fare evasion ticket for buses other than those owned by the MBTA, you'll need to pay a fine of $5–20. This violation is treated as a civil infraction, and you're not entitled to a court-appointed lawyer. 


How to respond

You'll need to pay the fine in person to the court you received the ticket from.
