Riders Can’t Wait For June 30th Congestion Pricing Start!

“Better transit, cleaner air, and less traffic are closer than ever— and today, riders learned that they can celebrate a new era for New York on June 30th. The decades of debate about this common-sense law are behind us, the toll readers are up, and low-income or disabled individuals can already sign up for discounts and exemptions. Congestion pricing is happening, and it can’t come soon enough. Improved accessibility across the system, upgraded signals and stations, new rail cars and electric buses, and the IBX and Phase 2 of the Second Avenue Subway all depend on it. The vast majority of people in New York, New Jersey, and beyond take transit into the Congestion Relief Zone and we can’t wait any longer!”
