T.A. and the Campaign for New York’s Future Rally for Congestion Pricing

The clock is ticking. If you do one thing to help win a
healthier city for this generation and the next, join
us
on Sunday.

Join Transportation Alternatives and the Campaign for New York’s Future this Sunday morning as we rally at City Hall to win the last-minute passage of congestion pricing. With only a few days left before the federal deadline for $500 M in funding lapses, this is our last chance to push Albany to take action.

On the day before the deadline, we will send a clear message that New Yorkers demand better transit, less traffic and cleaner air. Wear green, bring friends and family, and help make this eleventh hour push count!
