Pricing Recs to Include Residential Parking Permits
The Congestion Mitigation Commission will vote on a plan today at 3 p.m. A source who has seen the final draft of the Commission’s report tells me that it includes the following recommendations:
- Congestion pricing revenue goes directly to the MTA.
- A residential parking permit program with revenues going towards funding streetscape improvements and bike infrastructure.
- Making 60th Street the northern boundary of the pricing zone rather than 86th Street as Mayor Bloomberg originally proposed.
- A surcharge on taxis and black cars operating inside the pricing zone.
