Behind the scenes with MBTA data.

Investigating the changes in short fares paid on-board buses after the cash fare was reduced from $2.10 to an even $2.00.

The MBTA is developing a new Service Plan focused on improving our bus routes to better meet our customer’s needs. For the first time we now have much better data about how passengers are using the bus and rapid transit network from our Origin Destination Inference model (ODx). (More information about this model can be found in this earlier post.)
