Local officials will hold a hearing this Wednesday in Medford on a state proposal to hike bus and T fares while cutting services.
The hearing, at Medford City Hall in the City Council chambers at 6:30 p.m., will be hosted by state Representatives Carlo Sciortino, Paul Donato, and Sean Garballey, in addition to state Senator Patricia Jehlen.
The Massachusetts Bay Transit Authority faces a $161 million deficit next budget year. T leaders have scheduled more than two dozen regional hearings to discuss the service cuts.
