*** Important and time-sensitive ***
You have an opportunity to share your thoughts on proposed changes to the MBTA system From the MBTA- Challenged by unprecedentedly low ridership due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the MBTA is facing a historic moment. In October 2020, riders took around 330,000 daily trips—or 26% of daily ridership compared to 2019.
The MBTA has continued to run service at 2019 levels, even though it does not match current demand. In order to protect essential service for those who depend upon it, we need to reduce service where there are fewer riders.
