Subway officials in New York extended free student-pass hours until 10:30 p.m. for yeshiva students who attend classes late in the evening. Most student passes are only good through 8:30 p.m., and some yeshiva students had been arrested for jumping subway turnstiles when their passes didn’t work after late classes, according to a spokeswoman for New York Assemblyman Dov Hikind.
