The Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority will be before the community Tuesday night to hear exactly what Mattapan thinks about the potential fare hikes and service cuts proposed by the agency earlier in the month.
The MBTA has proposed two scenarios to tackle its $161 million budget shortfall.
Scenario one would raise fares by 43-percent while scenario two would only increase fares by 35-percent but also make cuts to bus routes throughout the city.
Both proposals would also eliminate the MBTA’s ferry service, as well as end commuter rail service at 10 p.m. on weeknights and eliminate weekend service on the commuter rail, the Mattapan Trolley and the Green Line’s E branch.
The MBTA is currently holding a series of meetings to get feedback from the community. Tuesday’s meeting will be held at the Mildred Avenue Community Center from 6:00 p.m. - 8:00 p.m.
