Fare increases on MBTA?

Commuters could be looking at a potential 15%-20% increase in fares on the MBTA this fall, even if the state plugs some of that agency’s overwhelming debt.

According to Boston.com, Transportation Secretary James Aloisi said the increase – which would hopefully stave off other increases for the next few years – will go through a public process along with other options, including possible service cuts.

  1. Well, maybe one thing they can do is make sure that the conductors on the afternoon outbound charge fares to people getting on the train in Westborough and Grafton. I wonder across the system how many people ride the train for free. I have taken to just buying a round trip ticket in the morning so I make sure I actually pay. If not I could ride the train home for free every single day.
