Fare Evasion Costs

A Hart made this Official Information request to Auckland Transport

This request has an unknown status. We're waiting for A Hart to read recent responses and update the status.

From: A Hart

Dear Auckland Transport,

I am interesting in the costs and benefits on the program to reduce fare evasion.
Increased fines for fare evasion were instigated in June 2018, and at the time there was a claimed 2-3 million dollars a year in lost revenue from fare evasion on the transport system (The New Zealand Herald, June 11 2018).

Please provide the working for that figure, and any updated figures on the current estimate of lost revenue from fare evasion for the years since June 2018.

Could you also provide a summary of the number of people who have been issued infringement notices since June 2018, and how many paid the $150 fine and how many paid a $500 fine.

Lastly I would like to know the cost of this program. I understand it is meant as a deterrant rather than revenue gathering. Please provide the cost of marketing against fare evasion (including the production and placement of the “No more lame excuses” advertising), transport officers and equipment (including the installation of gates at stations), and the cost of prosecution for infringement notices.

Yours faithfully,

Alex Hart
