MBTA Red Line Countdown Signs, Charles-MGH, December 31, 2013The MassDOT Board of Directors in May approved changes in MBTA fares effective July 1st, 2014. Fares for MBTA fixed route services will increase an average of 5%.

The fare increase is projected to raise MBTA fare revenue by approximately 4%, or $20-24 million, and result in a reduction in ridership of less than a 1%. The fare increase is consistent with the needs expressed in Governor Patrick’s Way Forward Plan issued in January 2013 and with the Transportation Finance legislation enacted in July 2013.
