"The result," Sarah Mullins of the Transportation Equity Network said at the time, "is dramatic service cuts and fare increases that are hurting people who are trying to hang onto hard-to-find jobs and who can least afford the added financial strain."

METRO will hold a public hearing to discuss the potential fare increases on February 11, from 7 to 9 pm, in the State of Maine room at City Hall (389 Congress Street). Falmouth and Westbrook will also hold hearings; visit gpmetrobus.com for more information.
