MASSACHUSETTS BAY TRANSPORTATION AUTHORITY- POSTED 2/8/19 @ 10:45 AM- MIDDLETON TOWN CLERK'S OFFICE

Wednesday, February 27, 2019

MBTA riders are invited to comment on a proposed fare increase which the Fiscal and Management Control Board is scheduled to consider in March following the month-long public comment period in February. Under the draft proposal, fares would increase an average of 6.3 percent with bus fares increasing by $0.10, subway fares by $0.15, a monthly LinkPass by $5.50 and a weekly LinkPass by $1.25. The proposed rates are below the statutorily-authorized 7 percent rate the MBTA is allowed to assess once every two years. Revenues from the rate increase will enable the MBTA to keep pace with inflation and support customer service enhancements being rolled out as a part of the authority’s comprehensive $8 billion modernization and improvement plan. If approved, the new fare schedule would take effect July 1, 2019.Comments can also be submitted using the MBTA website, by e-mail at fares@mbta.com, or by phone at (617) 222-3200, TTY (617) 222-5146.
