Organization

The Metropolitan Area Planning Council, with Harvard School of Public Health and the Boston University School of Public Health

Working with colleagues from the Harvard School of Public Health and the Boston University School of Public Health, the Metropolitan Area Planning Council (MAPC) conducted a health impact assessment (HIA) of the two proposals of fare increases and service cuts aimed at closing the Boston T's projected deficit of $161 million this year. Under Scenario 1, fares would increase by 43% and service reductions would affect between 34–48 million trips each year. Under Scenario 2, fares would increase by 35% and service reductions would affect between 53-64 million trips each year.
