Reminder: MBTA Fares, Surcharge Policy Changes Effective Today
Riders of the Route 34E bus will now pay a bit more when boarding the MBTA line.
A reminder to Westwood residents who utilize The Ride and the Commuter Rail that the Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority's fare changes go into effect today, July 1.
Meanwhile, riders of the Commuter Rail won't all face a $3 surcharge when buying tickets aboard trains, as the MBTA has modified that policy, which is to start today as well.
The surcharge will apply only on inbound fares from stations selling tickets, and on outbound fares "from South Station, Back Bay or North Station or Zone 1A stations with ticket sales," According to MBTA Legislative Director Jefferson Smith. (Full details on the MBTA fare hikes can be found here.)
