“Today, we celebrate a major milestone in our fight to create an affordable, accessible MBTA. Thank you to our Representatives, Senators, and the Healey Administration for passing a new state budget that includes $5 million towards a reduced fare program for low-income MBTA riders. This revenue will allow the MBTA to carry out its plan for a low-income fare program.
We must all be able to go where we need to without worrying about how to afford rent, food, or other necessities. With this budget, our elected officials have shown they are committed to ensuring the MBTA is affordable and accessible for all riders.”
