Voices rise against MBTA changes

Rate hikes, service cuts are being considered

More than 400 public transit riders blasted the Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority’s proposed rate hikes and service cuts last night in Boston, insisting that the measures would harm the poor, the elderly and the disabled, and students.

“How much do you expect the poor to pay?’’ said Jane D’Angelo, 47, during a public hearing hosted by the MBTA on the proposed changes at the Boston Public Library’s central library in Copley Square.
