passes lost in the fare box
That is the box mounted by the driver


Explanation:
e.g. in a public transit bus into which riders throw the fare (the ticket price in cash) or, in this case, their pass (or tickets/tokens, depending on the system). These boxes are heavily armored so that a) they cannot be broken into and b) the drivers do not have to accept cash (or tickets) which might make them a target for robberies.
This looks like a US context...

Hope this helps; I've never seen these in Europe, so
maybe you'd have to explain rather than translate.
