MBTA
BOSTON — The Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority is proposing 2019 fare changes that amount to a 6.3 percent increase and would take effect July 1.

If approved, the changes would be the first since 2016 and the fourth since 2012. By state law the agency is allowed to increase fares no more than 7 percent once every two years.

One-way commuter rail fares by zone would increase from 15 to 75 cents, while monthly passes would increase in a range from $5.50 to $27.75, depending by zone. A full list of the fare proposals is available here, with a PDF version here.

The agency has scheduled a series of meetings about the fare proposals, as well as community meetings on the fares and other topics. A list of those meetings is available here.
