Mayor Walsh thundered on Twitter today:
There should be no fare increase until the Red Line is fixed.
The MBTA must act with urgency and it's unfair to ask riders to pay more until the Red Line is fully operational.
He also agreed with at-large City Councilor Michelle Wu that Boston should gain representation again on the board that oversees the T.
Wu, meanwhile, has been tweeting today that not only should the T rescind the planed July 1 fare increases, the state should be looking for new revenue sources to make the T decent again, including various fees and tolls for users of the state's roadways.
