So the last time I took the NJ Transit train line, they never collected my ticket (which is between my local stop and another town I visit frequently.) I'm taking the train again today, and since I'm heading to the same area, I was planning on using the ticket they never collected.
However, the ticket I have on hand isn't for the same town I'm headed to today. It's a local train with a lot of stops, and I'm actually headed to the stop right before the one the ticket would get me to. Meaning, if you ignore the fact that I got a free ride the last time I took the train, I'm technically paying extra for a ticket, if that makes sense. (Like I said, the stop I'm headed to today is the one right BEFORE the stop the ticket would bring me to.) Usually I wouldn't think anything of it- I could just hop off one stop early, and I know it wouldn't matter. However, the train I'm catching today isn't actually going all the way to the town listed on my ticket; the last stop is the one I'm actually planning on getting off at. My question is, since the train isn't actually going there, will they give me crap for having a ticket to the wrong stop, even though technically I'd have paid less if I had a ticket to the right one? (Sorry if this is confusing!) If so I'll just grab a ticket before I get on board, but I'd like to avoid paying a massive amount of extra fees if they wind up not accepting my ticket.
