Wow! Emoticons!

They took the idea from them, hoping to save money; but they failed horribly...

I assume this has nothing to do with my recent puzzle about New York taking London's idea for traffic charges? Is New York relevant at all? They = a city? A council? A government? An official body? A sports team? A group of professionals?

Them = [same questions]?

"to save money" = to avoid spending money they would otherwise have spent? To gain something for less than it would otherwise have cost?
Did "them" succeed in saving money using the same idea? But "they" failed?
Is it relevant how many people make up either group? 1? 2? 3? 4? 5?... 10?... 50? 100?

Did "they" misunderstand "them"'s idea? misapply it?

did they try to get on the train without tickets?
did they actually ride on the train--maybe in the passenger cars? did they move around the train hiding from the conductor who takes the ticket?

or were they "stowaways" in some of the boxcars or where ever people might go if they were "hitching a ride" on a train.

Weekly and monthly passes may have a sticker with either M or F to prevent husbands and wives from sharing a single pass; however, two neighbors can share a ticket if they work alternative shifts, for example.

Did either group try to share a pass?

Does this have anything to do with the joke about several people hiding in a train toilet and slipping one ticket under the door Yes (it should go quick from now on)

Weekly and monthly passes may have a sticker with either M or F to prevent husbands and wives from sharing a single pass; however, two neighbors can share a ticket if they work alternative shifts, for example.
Did either group try to share a pass? No

So the passengers were somehow sharing a train ticket?
a paper ticket?
Does it involve the train bathroom?

Were they twins, and this is the end with a classic of a wristwatch on the different arm?

So if I know that joke about the train bathroom is this a $poil? Yes, it is based on the joke. But you have to determine why did A fail horribly.

Disarming a possible FA: The A didn't know the joke.

***SPOILER***

So, here's the solution:
The A and the B were going by a train. Each of the group consisted of three people. The A bought three tickets, while B bought only one ticket!
During the trip, when the conductor started checking tickets, the B hid in a toilet. When the conductor passed near the toilet he noticed that someone is inside; he knocked and the B slipped their ticket under the door. The conductor, not realizing there are three people inside, moved on.
The A witnessed this and decided to try this. Next time both groups went by train, the A bought oinly one ticket...

...and the B didn't buy any! when the conductor started checking tickets, the A hid in a toilet. B quickly knocked on the door. The A, thinking that it's the conductor knocking, slipped their ticket under the door. The B took the ticket and quickly hid in the toilet on the other side...
