2. The MTA and NYPD are attempting to crack down on fare evasion, but a new report from the Daily News shows that Black and Latino New Yorkers make up the "vast majority" of people stopped by police for turnstile jumping. Out of the 682 people arrested for fare evasion between April and June, 86 percent were black or Latino, and 71 percent of fare evaders who were issued with a summons instead of arrested were black or Latino. The Daily News notes that since the NYPD began releasing fare evasion data in 2017, the numbers have shown that officers are much more likely to stop people of color for turnstile hopping. —NEW YORK DAILY NEWS
