At the direction of Governor Patrick, Transportation Secretary Aloisi asked MBTA Interim General Manager Bill Mitchell to suspend all future public workshops on any potential fare increase or service cuts. 

Last week Secretary Aloisi said a fare increase will not be considered until a full top to bottom review of the MBTA by an outside panel of experts is complete. 

Governor Deval Patrick and Secretary Aloisi believe this outside review is essential as we move to consolidate and streamline our transportation bureaucracy under the historic transportation reform signed into law  in late June.  As part of the top to bottom review we will be able to to fully understand the fiscal situation and operations at the MBTA before we even consider a fare increase.  Our goal is to seek out every possible reform and efficiency, while at the same time renewing the T’s focus on customer service.
