Trams covered in excuses aim to encourage free riders to pay

31-05-2018

Two black-painted trams adorned with written excuses frequently proffered by passengers without tickets have gone into service in Prague.

The Czech term for free riders is “black passenger” and the trams are part of a campaign entitled “Are you riding black?”

Also part of the drive is an offer of half-price fines for free riding if the offending passenger purchases a yearly pass.
