All Boston students in grades seven through 12 in Boston will be provided with free MBTA passes, starting in the 2019-20 school year.
A 5.8 percent rate hike for rides on the T or the commuter rail will go into effect, according to a release from the Massachusetts Bay Transport Authority (MBTA). The governing board of the MBTA voted in favor of the fare increase on Monday night. Bus rates will be unaffected, as will rates paid by seniors and riders with disabilities.
A lively gathering of Bostonians crowded outside the Transportation Board Room on Wednesday for a public hearing on the Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority’s (MBTA) proposed fare hike, which will go into effect July 1 of this year.
In October, the MBTA will begin laying 25,000 feet of new track and replacing 6.5 miles of signals on the Green Line D branch between the Beaconsfield and Riverside stations.
Last month, when the MBTA announced that the T would no longer run its late-night service, I didn’t realize right away the impact it could have on the city, and particularly, on myself.
