SB 882 - End the Criminalization of Youth for Riding Transit Without Fare

California must stop criminalizing children and youth for riding transit without fare. No child should be charged with a criminal offense because they could not pay a couple of dollars to ride a train or bus. Senate Bill 882, by Senator Robert Hertzberg, prevents children and youth under 18 from being charged with a penal code infraction for riding transit without fare.

Status: Governor Brown signed SB 882 into law on August 22! The law will take effect January 1, 2017.
