“We are thrilled to see the MBTA commit to launching a low-income fare program! Last week, the Board approved a new operating budget that includes $5 million to establish a reduced fare program for low-income riders.
Our thanks to members of the Board, MBTA staff, and the Healey Administration for your commitment to creating a transit system that prioritizes affordability and accessibility for all people.
We will continue to fight for legislation to ensure a low-income fare is available to riders who need it for generations to come.”
