Where does New York Stand on Congestion Pricing?

Phase One or Epic Head Fake? 

Congestion pricing was not included in New York’s budget this spring. Governor Cuomo has said that we’ve started the process with the new surcharges for yellow taxis and for-hire vehicles (which have not gone into effect yet). Is this really phase one of congestion pricing? Or have we all been subject to an epic head fake by the governor and legislature with little chance of recovery in the near term?

Join TransitCenter for a panel including: a veteran Albany policy and politics expert, Executive Director of the Riders Alliance, and a tenacious NYC transportation reporter to ask “phase one or epic head fake?”
