MBTA raising fares

Starting in January, subway and trolley fares would increase from $1.25 to $1.70, and bus fares would go from 90 cents to $1.25. Riders who don’t use new automated fare CharlieCards would pay even higher fares. The good news is that there will finally be free transfers systemwide.
