Congestion Pricing: Benefits for Queens

What does Congestion Pricing mean for western Queens? Transportation Alternatives and the Citizens Committee for NYC are hosting a panel discussion on the transit, health and quality of life benefits of Congestion Pricing for Long Island City, Sunnyside and Woodside.

Transportation Consultant Bruce Schaller will present his new study, "Congestion Pricing for New York: Benefits for the Bronx, Brooklyn, Queens and Staten Island." The study details how an overwhelming majority of commuters across Queens will benefit from the transportation improvements financed by congestion pricing, and how only a very small minority of commuters (5%) will be impacted by this plan.

T.A. and the Citizens Committee will present on the types of transportation improvements that will be implemented prior to the congestion charge, including faster express buses, dedicated busways on bridges and Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) in neighborhoods that lack subway access.

Residents and business owners are encouraged to come with questions.
