Depends on how many passengers purchase single ride tickets vs. monthly passes. When I used to commute to New York Penn from Newark Broad, there would usually be 1-2 free rides a week because the conductor did not get to my car before I got off. I imagine a lot of people ride for free on the standing room only trains; conductors move like molasses on those.
