MINNEAPOLIS — Star Tribune reported that Metro Transit is having drivers on three of its busiest bus routes enter information into a computer when a customer can’t or won’t pay full fare. The agency is trying to find out whether it can gather enough data to pinpoint when and where people are not paying.

The transit system provided 68 million bus rides in 2012, and about 4% of riders didn’t pay. For the full story, click here.
