MBTA Fare Hikes and Service Cuts Take Effect Sunday

It will cost more to ride the T starting this weekend — and some routes will have decreased service.

On Sunday the start. They're being imposed — along with service cuts — to close the transit agency's $160 million budget gap. Those service cuts also begin Sunday.

There are other changes, like an increase in the surcharge for getting your Commuter Rail ticket on the train (if the station where you board has ticket machines). THE RIDE will add a more expensive $5 zone starting Oct. 1.

For a complete list of changes taking place on the MBTA system beginning Sunday, visit this T link or check out the PDFs attached to this post.
