Workers with the MBTA are the highest-paid workers in public transit in the country and are set to get raises in upcoming years, according to a report obtained by the Boston Herald.
The report from MBTA consultant John Dash says that MBTA bus drivers can make up to $34.99 per hour, while train operators can make up to $35.40 per hour.
Upcoming raises will total five percent over the next two years according to the current Boston Carmen's Union contract, which are among the highest raises in the country.
The first 2.5 percent raise is scheduled for July, while the remaining part will come in 2017.
According to the report, MBTA officials say workers have also received a combined 5.5 percent in raises since July 2014.
