MBTA Riders All Kinds of Pissed Off Over Proposed Service Cuts, Fare Hikes. So yesterday, we predicted that the MBTA’s series of public hearings weren’t going to go so well. We introduced you to this guy, who, we suspected, would become the poster boy of public hearings over the next few weeks. And that’s pretty much what happened.

Two down, 18 to go. [Boston.com]
