What do you think of the MBTA board’s vote to increase subway fares?

“It may be needed, but they haven’t shown the value of the increase by improving service.”

Clifton Brathwaite

“I don’t think it’s fair, with all the service interruptions. They’re not doing enough to improve the system.”

Cornelius Hudson

“It’s not good. They’re not fixing anything, but keep raising the fares”

Cynthia Caldwell

“I think it’s horrible. People can’t afford the fares as they are. This ain’t the suburbs”

Dean Robinson

“We’ve got to get to work. Fifteen cents isn’t going to kill us.”

“I don’t feel that it’s a big deal. Every state has to raise fares according to what they need in their public transit system. It’s ok as long as people can afford to use it.”
