A majority of Massachusetts residents oppose the sweeping set of cuts proposed by the MBTA, according to a new MassINC poll out today.

The proposed transit cuts, which are up for a vote on Dec. 14 and could save the system $128 million, include, among other things, ending commuter rail service after 9 p.m. and on weekends, closing six commuter rails stations, ending ferry service, and cutting 25 bus routes.

We discuss and take listener calls with MBTA General Manager Steve Poftak.
