The MTA is launching a new panel in an effort to combat fare evasion.
The initiative is called the Fareness Blue Ribbon panel and will focus on three areas: education, equity and enforcement.
According to the MTA, fare evasion has nearly tripled on the subway from about 3% to more than 12% in the last few years.
On buses, around one out of every three bus riders evade the fare.
