bart platform. then there was this man in a suit and tie. he also entered into the emergency door and stopped to take notes. shortly after that he also heads down to the bart platform. where to bart these people are ferry inveders. anyone who uses these doors and not paying for bart is not paying for public transportation. i say almost because there are a few exceptions. see this man with his bicycle. he goes around and uses a bart ticket. now that is acceptable. other bike riders simply carry their bikes over the fair gaeds so it's always in their possession. there are a couple of issues. evasion is being one of them. bart makes about $500 million in revenue but loses countless
millions due to ferry evaders. i was there for only an hour and watched as dozens upon dozens of people simply walk in or out of the emergency gates evading bart fares. it's around $250. plus you may have to do community service. with bart you can be under the age of 4 or have a bart card, a clipper card or a fare voucher. these are the only way you can ride bart legally. everything else is questionable. at embark bart station. actor will farrell will not be starring as ronald reagan. the 48-year-old was set to play reagan. an intern tries to convince him that he is still an actor playing the president in a movie. the reagan family shamed

tickets which they're lower level tickets. they're very good seats. it's round 2 and game 1 so i imagine they'll go for a lot more. we've been season ticket holders for four years so we've been to plenty of games. at the end of the day it's just a game. i don't know how you can compare that to a child's life. >> when something like this happens to your family people step up and help you like this man and you start to feel differently about how good people are. >> reporter: the family has received help from others as well as you can see from their gofundme page. if you would like to make a donation you can find all the information at kron4.com. kron4 news. just in time for that summer wedding. coming up a new spotted disney world where you can the knot. -- a new spot at disney world where you can tie the knot.
