City Council Speaker Christine Quinn announced her support for congestion pricing at a press conference this morning on the Hudson River Greenway at Charles Street:
Over the past two months I have been carefully reviewing the 127 items included in PlaNYC 2030. Many of these grew out of the Mayor’s Sustainability Task Force, which the Council was pleased to participate in.
I support the move to congestion pricing and recognize its importance to the goals of PlaNYC 2030. But before congestion pricing is implemented, the various mass transit upgrades, enhancements and expansions discussed in this plan must be in place across the City, especially in neighborhoods that are currently underserved by public transportation.
