Peoples' Resistance to the 1%'s Attack on Transit

On July 1st, the Massachusetts Bay Transit Authority (MBTA) increased fares 23% across the Boston-area public transit system. In response, community, worker, and political groups—including Common Struggle—formed the Boston Fare Strike (BFS) coalition. According to their statement, BFS launched a fare strike on July 1st to “not only defend our public transit, but to improve and expand it to better serve the people of Boston and the surrounding environment.”
