PROVIDENCE, R.I.—Commuter rail passengers in Rhode Island will have to pay more to ride the Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority.
The MBTA is eliminating some services in Massachusetts and raising fares throughout the system starting Sunday.
In Rhode Island, it means riders will have to pay 75 cents more to ride one way between points within the state, or at least $2 more to get to Boston.
The one-way fare from Providence to Boston will be $10 starting Sunday, up from $7.75. From T.F. Green Airport, it will cost $10.50, up from $8.25 and from Wickford Junction to Boston it will be $11, up from $9. Within Rhode Island, fares will be $3 to go one stop, or $3.25 to ride the two stops between Wickford and Providence.
