T’s plan for fare hikes, service cuts due this week

Previous ideas spurred an outcry

MBTA administrators are expected to make a final recommendation this week on the package of fare increases and service cuts needed to balance the T’s estimated $160 million deficit for the coming year.

Some board members had asked for the recommendation in time for Tuesday’s meeting of the board’s finance committee. But board members and other officials said they do not anticipate the recommendations coming from MBTA staff until later in the week.
