Transit Advocates Voice Support For MTA Congestion Pricing Plan

Spectrum News NY1 reports, supporters of the MTA’s proposed congestion pricing program — it’s still undergoing review by FHWA — appeared on air recently to respond to criticism that it will “unfairly affect communities underserved by public transportation.” Representatives of two transit advocacy groups that belong to the #CongestionPricingNow Coalition, maintain that congestion zone tolling will not just reduce traffic and pollution, but provide funding for major MTA transit projects. (Discussion about the program’s terms and prospects for approval are part of the nine-minute video interview.)
