MBTA One Step Closer to Deciding Fare Hikes, Service Cuts

MBTA secretary Richard Davey will offer his final recommendation to the board the last week of March, and the MBTA board’s deadline for a final decision is April 15. But it’s looking like subway fares (now $1.70 with a Charlie Card) could increase to $2.25-$2.40, and bus fares could increase from $1.25 to $1.50-$1.75. Service cuts are looking likely for the ferry service, the commuter rail, and some bus lines. [WCVB]
