BOSTON — Elimination of same-day booking for paratransit service, savings in commuter rail weekend service and the introduction of alcohol ads onto the system are some of the ways Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority (MBTA) officials are seeking to shrink the agency's roughly $50 million structural deficit, reported WBJournal.com.

The alcohol ads, which would require a change in MBTA policy, could boost advertising revenues by $1.5 million to $3 million, the report said.

The plan includes a potential $6 million in annual savings from weekend commuter rail and a savings of more than $7 million for paratransit service changes, reported WBJournal.com
