All the recent Twitter hubbub about fares at the new Brighton commuter-rail station got state Transportation Secretary Stephanie Pollack to thinking: Could there be other stations near downtown that have unfair fares?
Charlie Ticotsky attended today's meeting of the T's Fiscal and Management Control Board, reports:
Secretary Pollack says that Twitter reaction flagged the Boston Landing Zone 1/1A issue. Says MBTA will undertake a Commuter Rail zone review.
It will especially look at stations 5-10 miles from terminus, where there is inconsistency. Review to be done by end of year.
The whole zone inequity thing has become an issue in the southern section of Boston, where Fairmount Line riders pay $2.25 per ride - except at Readville, where the fare is $6.75 - and Roslindale and West Roxbury riders have to pay $6.25 per ride.
