FY2015 MBTA Fare Change Proposal - Staff Recommendation
The MBTA proposes to increase fares by 5% on July 1, 2014, as part of the effort to balance the Authority’s FY15 budget.
The fare increase is projected to raise MBTA fare revenue by approximately 4% ($20 to 24m in new fare revenue) and result in less than a 1% reduction in ridership (2.8m to 3.8m trips). 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.
Below please find materials about the fare proposal and the public review process scheduled for April 2014. Also available here is background information on the MBTA and peer transit agencies as well as the MBTA’s Title VI Civil Rights Program proposed Disparate Impact/Disproportionate Burden policy.
