Stop it before it spreads to a city near you.
The Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA), which is responsible for public transportation in the greater New York City (NYC) area, has announced a public comment period ending September 9, 2022, on the implementation of the Central Business District (CBD) Tolling Program. The Program’s claimed purpose is to reduce traffic congestion in the Manhattan CBD while generating revenue for future public transportation improvements at the expense of motorists.
Since this would be the first activation of a congestion pricing plan by a major city in the United States, all motorists have a vested interest in the outcome. That is why we are encouraging members across the country to respond to the MTA in opposition to the tolling plan during the comment period. You could be impacted if you visit NYC for business and/or pleasure, so you should feel entitled to comment.
