    re’ Metro employees are complaining that the public abuses them and evades fares. That is only part of the story. For decades their fellow WMATA employees have intentionally let folks through the gate on Metro, and let people on the bus without paying. It makes it harder for those WMATA that really try to do their job correctly. Clearly, WMATA never bothers to audit their drivers, or Metro managers.
