Man faces £460 bill for dodging train fare in Bradford
A MAN faces a bill of more than £460 after dodging a train fare between Rochdale and Bradford.
Rafael Ferdinand, 22, of Broadway, Bradford, faced one charge of travelling on the railway without paying a fare.
He travelled between Rochdale and Bradford Interchange without paying the £10.70 fare.
During this journey, on June 9, 2022, he was asked by the conductor to produce a valid ticket and could not. He could then not pay for the journey he was making.
He was issued with an Unpaid Fares Notice to pay the fare within 21 days. He did not pay within the time limit, and two subsequent letters were sent to him, without a payment being made.
Ferdinand was fined £220, ordered to pay £150 costs, a £88 victim surcharge and £10.70 compensation for the offence, which totalled £468.70.
Ferdinand was sentenced in his absence at Kirklees Magistrates’ Court on January 20, 2023.
