>> last month, we showed you the shocking footage, person after person getting on bart trains without paying. >> what is bart doing about it? susie, has some surprising news. >> reporter: bart is implementing what it calls station hardening right now. and that is adding some barriers like this to the emergency exit, to make it more difficult to jump over. but what about the fare gates? the ones that you have seen in those videos, of people hurtling themselves over during rush hour. the runs right here. well, there is no plan in place right now, to replace those, not even at bart's newest patients.
6:54 pm
>> take a peek inside bart's newest station, one of two sets to open later this year, in san jose. it looks high-tech, except for something pretty old school. parts fare gates. they are the same gates that the cameras caught a constant stream of people pushing and jumping through without paying, in a recent undercover investigation. >> it is frustrating. >> parts director was shocked when she learned the brand-new stations still have the old- style gates. >> that is something i have been asking for since the day i was elected, and attended my first meeting. it is when will re-replace the fare gates. they were designed in 1972? they have been upgraded since. but, it is clear now, but we are in a different time, and the fare evasion is getting worse. >> bart estimates fare evasion cost the transit agency anywhere from $25-$30 million a year. placing all of these old fare gates which there are 600, would cost roughly $250 million.

a lot of money from collecting these fines, it is really to yo fare of asian as the citation team was launched? >> again, that is a difficult thing to put a number on. >> reporter: director, deborah says if there is no proof that citations are working, it is time to redirect the funds. >> here we are, i guess a little over a year. and we see that people are not paying the tickets, the people who do get the tickets, you know, we see what you saw. with your cameras. so, i think that we need to rethink that. so the answ to the fare evasion problem is to harden the stations. >> reporter: bart engineers, are looking at designs, and of course how much it would cost, to fix this fare evasion
6:57 pm
problem. one of the options is adding pressure to these gates to make them more difficult to push open. that would cost roughly $15-$20 million systemwide. but, replacing all of these gates, at all 600 stations, again that would cost 250 million, and that is something bart is going to be talking about at its next meeting. in san francisco, susie, kpix 5. >> is a private company were losing 30 million a year, they would figure it out in a hurry. >> thanks for watching, 60 minutes is coming up next. >> for more news throughout the evening, latest on and we will see you back here at 11 pm tonight. >> long work hours, longer commutes, part of living in the bay area. we can't fix it, but we can give you more. all that and much more, the cbs evening news, now at 6:30 pm followed by the new kpix 5 news at 7 pm.
