Eno Report Called a "Playbook" For Success In Implementing Congestion Pricing

Streetsblog USA reports, the Eno Center for Transportation’s new report, “Congestion Pricing in the United States,” shows how officials “can bust myths about congestion pricing in the public consciousness — and implement road pricing that makes entire transportation networks more equitable, rather than less.” According to the article, Eno’s study “offers a comprehensive playbook for cities to create congestion pricing programs that center equity long before and long after a single quarter is tossed into a toll box.” It also suggests the report may become an important reference for officials as “city revenues plunge and transit empties out due to the COVID-19 pandemic.”
