BART worker in trouble for giving tickets to student
FRESNO, Calif. (KFSN) -- A San Francisco transit worker is in trouble for giving a needy teenager free BART tickets to get to school. The worker, Jim Stanek, says he gave the teenager $300 worth of paid, unused tickets left behind by BART commuters, which are normally thrown away.
That 16-year-old relies on BART to get to school and had been having trouble paying for his tickets because it costs $200 dollars a month to get to and from school.
The BART employee now faces a personnel hearing on Friday to find out his punishment. But according to the San Francisco Chronicle, he's been told he may be forced to retire.
