MBTA FARES

A "Fair Fare" for MBTA

In July, MBTA will raise its fares for the first time since 1999. MBTA works very hard to
keep fares low, because we know how important economical transit service is to our
riders. But to make sure the bus is there for you, today and in the future, we must
increase fares to reflect our increased costs. Click here to show our proposed fare
change. If you'd like to comment on the proposed fares, please attend our public
hearing, call or write.
