MBTA Fare Increase Public Meeting Tonight

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.
