Today’s Congestion Headlines

  • Why is Bloomberg talking about exempting city residents from the CC? Sounds like a smoke screen to me.

    Can we expect him to start working on exempting city residents from the subway fare next?

  • If Bloomberg rules out congestion pricing, I hope he will at least consider raising tolls significantly on the bridges and tunnels, and implementing tolls on all of the East River bridges. This past Saturday afternoon, I spent forty-five minutes in a traffic jam trying to enter the Holland Tunnel on the Jersey side. I wish the city would double the toll from $6 to $12 to discourage people from driving and to encourage people to take mass transit instead.
