MBTA: That's not fare

A bus passenger was detained for throwing his fare at a driver.

A man was ordered to court by Transit Police today after he allegedly assaulted a T bus driver.

The unidentified man apparently became angry after the Route 39 driver asked him for his fare. That’s when the man pushed the driver and threw change at him, a T spokesman said.

The assault took place about 8:25 a.m. at Huntington Avenue and Green Street.

Police detained the man and issued him a summons to appear in court.

Officials cleared the bus driver to continue service after he denied medical treatment.

The bus did not have cameras, the T spokesman said.
