Scary service cuts and fare increases coming to the MBTA. ~20%-50% fare increases depending upon whether you use tickets or cards, and whether you're eligible for reduced fares. Large fare increases for The RIDE, and reduction of service area to ADA minimums. Commuter rail cancelled after 10pm and on weekends entirely. Eliminate ~100 bus routes (affecting 25% of existing bus ridership).

And all of this because the MBTA is paying the debt on the Big Dig, which primarily helped auto transport and had very little to do with public transit.
