A MOTHER and daughter who tried to game the system on the Market-Frankford El Monday morning ended up leaving behind their most prized possession - a baby.
The matriarch and her adult daughter, whose names were withheld by SEPTA, were traveling with the younger woman's baby girl in a stroller, spokeswoman Heather Redfern said.
The two adults had a single one-day convenience pass, Redfern said. The pass allows one person to take eight rides on SEPTA on a given day, but the women thought they'd found a way to avoid paying full fare.
The grandmother, mother and baby went to the 60th Street Station, where the cashier punched the pass and allowed the mother to enter, Redfern said. The mother then handed the pass to the grandmother, who was to use it at the 56th Street Station to avoid suspicion, Redfern said.
