The MBTA is holding meetings for the public to offer recorded comments, which will be considered by the MBTA's Fiscal and Management Control Board and MassDOT. A series of 10 public meetings (January - February) on fare changes will be followed by a vote of the Board, which is anticipated to occur in March. The Board will consider public input on two possible scenarios.
Fare adjustments are just one part of a broader effort by the Massachusetts Department of Transportation to close the T's $242 million structural deficit with a series of cost cutting measures and improvements in operational efficiency.
