From the Daily News:
Brazen fare-beaters skip turnstiles once every 10 minutes at one Queens subway station - right under the noses of token booth clerks.
More than 157 riders were spotted sneaking through an emergency exit into the subway system at the Elmhurst Ave. station on the Queens Blvd. line during a one-day survey in March.
The fare cheats made booth N325A tops in the entire city for fare-beating at a staffed subway entrance.
Over the course of three days - one each in January, February and March - clerks noted a whopping 329 fare-beaters at the station.
Some hustle through the gate after a friend who paid opens the gate from the inside.
Others saunter in after simply waiting for a passenger to exit improperly through the emergency gate.
An alarm sounds briefly each time the gate is opened.
The one-day transit survey captured only fare-beaters observed by token booth clerks, meaning dozens of others may have gone unnoticed.
