The proposed MBTA service cutbacks are staggering.

Most of the media coverage in the past couple of weeks has centered on the T raising fares but the service cuts they are proposing are draconian.

They have two proposals out there and neither bodes well for the region.

Option 1

Option 2 

BOTH proposals would end commuter rail at 10 PM with NO SERVICE WEEKENDS.
This will make it next to impossible for people to take the train to sporting events.

BOTH proposals would end weekend service on the E branch of the Green Line and the Red Line shuttle between Ashmont and Mattapan. 

ALL ferry routes eliminated.

A glance at the proposed monthly pass costs will stagger you.
Seniors and disabled people will be hit the hardest.

This is a classic doomsday scenario for the region. The impact on the region would be devastating.

The T will hold the usual round of public meetings knowing that 99.9% of the ridership will not attend. 

This simply can not be allowed to happen.

Interesting. I would agree that focusing on growth vs cost control during the early stages of a business is ideal, however, there will be a point when that shifts
