MBTA public meetings begin; commuters chance to weigh-in

Now is your chance to weigh-in on the MBTA’s proposed fare hikes and late night service.

The first of more than a dozen public meetings will be held at the state transportation building in Boston Tuesday morning and night.

One plan calls for a system-wide rate increase of nearly 10 percent.

This comes as the T faces a $242 million budget gap.

If you are interested in attending a hearing, there are two of them Tuesday at the State Transportation building in Boston.
