MBTA FARE INCREASE PROPOSAL AND PUBLIC HEARING
MBTA

The MBTA proposes to increase fares by 5% on July 1, 2014 as part of the effort to balance the Authority’s FY15 budget.

The fare increase is projected to raise fare revenue by approximately 4% ($20 to 24m in new fare revenue) and result in less than a 1% reduction in ridership (2.8m to 3.8m trips). The fare increase is consistent with the needs expressed in The Way Forward Plan in January 2013 and with the Transportation Finance legislation of July 2013.

An impact analysis is being finalized and will be posted on mbta.com, providing information on ridership, revenue, equity and emissions impacts. All measureable impacts are minor and do not disproportionately affect minority or low-income populations. Read Full Details Here In A Recent Press Release
