Fare Hikes and Commuter Woes, Officials Hear From Riders


MBTA officials heard from the public and elected officials yesterday at Breed Middle School in Lynn. There was mixed praise about the second version of the revised commuter rail schedule, with concerns that two express trains would bypass Lynn and Swampscott, only saving Salem riders two minutes in their commutes.

Here’s new schedule information, a complete listing of public hearings and where you can give feedback before the comment period closes.
