Congestion pricing is back on the table in New York City. With the NYC subway in a state of emergency, bus ridership plunging and traffic levels worsening each year, New York needs to find new funding for transit and policies to better manage its streets.
As New York ultimately failed to implement congestion pricing, Stockholm forged ahead. After pricing’s implementation in 2007, Stockholm saw traffic fall, transit usage increase, and environmental gains. Importantly, these benefits have stood the test of time.
Join TransitCenter and Jonas Eliasson, Stockholm’s Director of Transport, for a discussion on congestion pricing in practice and what it could hold for New York City in 2018 and beyond.
