    What is English for...

    Hey,

    what do we call a person who doesnt pay a fare on a public means of transport? Does English use the phrase " black passenger"?

    Thanks,

    Waawe

    Re: What is English for...

    Fare dodger, fare evader? Are these OK?

    Any other ideas? Any informal names?

    Fare dodger or fare evader are both fine.
