At which station do Metro-North stations start to be un-staffed?

Well a more appropriate question is which stations are staffed. The answer to that is, Yonkers, White Plains, Port Chester and a few others I believe

Major cities are staffed all day , large towns are staffed only during the morning peak and small towns are unstaffed...

Mobile ticketing comes to New York commuter rail
06 Jul 2016





USA: New York MTA has introduced m-ticketing on its Long Island Rail Road and Metro North commuter rail networks using technology provided by mobile fare collection specialist Masabi.

Using Masabi’s JustRide mobile ticketing platform, passengers are able to purchase tickets using their smart phones as an alternative to a vending machine. As part of a phased roll-out, m-tickets have been accepted since June 30 on Metro North’s Hudson line and the Port Washington route operated by LIRR, and acceptance is to be extended to cover both networks by the end of August

Yes.

How do you buy a ticket so that it can't be cheated, and how do they check it?

According to MTA website:

http://www.mta.info/news/2016/07/05/...rr-metro-north

Quote:
1. Buy a ticket by entering information about origin and destination, and selecting the type of ticket (one-way, 10-trip, weekly or monthly). The ticket is then saved in an electronic “ticket wallet” feature in the app.

2. Prior to boarding the train, pull up the ticket from the ticket wallet and activate the ticket by tapping on the “activate ticket” button.

3. When a conductor comes through the train to ask for tickets, have the activated ticket displayed, and simply show the smartphone screen to the conductor. Conductors will visually validate the mobile ticket by looking at the screen. As the rollout proceeds, conductors will use a handheld device to scan mobile tickets.
If I am not mistaken, once the ticket is activated, it expires after a certain amount of time, regardless of whether the conductor checks it.

Paper tickets don't expire for a longer period of time, so they can be reused if not checked by the conductor (for example, on short journeys or in busy trains).

Paper tickets on Metro North & the LIRR expire after 3 months.... NJT has no limit..
