MBTA cuts weekend service on two lines
Greenbush, Kingston branches hit; fares up
After July 1, commuter trains on the Greenbush and Kingston/Plymouth lines will stop running on Saturdays and Sundays. And chances are, they’re not coming back. MBTA spokesman Joe Pesaturo said that given the T’s grave financial predicament, restoring weekend service on those Old Colony lines in the near future “is not likely.” Fare hikes and cutbacks are necessary, say T officials, to close a projected budget deficit of up to $185 million in fiscal 2013.
