CBS News covered the recent announcement that CPE will join partners to conduct a thorough analysis of fare evasion enforcement policies and practices at BART.  These efforts underway aim to directly address the disparate impact faced by Black and Brown transit riders and build more equitable policies intended to increase safety for all mass transit riders in the Bay Area.
