The cash-strapped MBTA needs money quickly if it’s to keep running late-night T service, according to an internal review released Wednesday.
Options include eliminating late-night service altogether, raising fares, reducing costs through service adjustments, or sponsorships.
More than 1.1 million people have used the service since it was launched last March. The servicekeeps lines open until 3 a.m. on Friday and Saturday nights, a 90-minute extension. The Green Line was the busiest late night line with 33 percent of ridership. Park Street was the busiest late night station, with almost 1,700 passengers.

Fares from late-night passengers covered only 16 percent of the program’s $12.9 million cost.
Late-night service will continue through June 19.
