Congestion Pricing

It’s Time to Tell Your Reps to Vote for Pricing

The public hearings have been held, the commission has approved a plan, now the votes on congestion pricing are fast approaching. As the March 31st legislative deadline draws near, Transportation Alternatives and other pro-pricing groups are ramping up the advocacy.

TA_CP_ad_1.jpgYesterday, T.A. sent a message to supporters outlining its strategy. The ad to the right is part of a campaign directing New Yorkers to GetNYCMoving.org, a site run by the Campaign for New York's Future where visitors
can tell their state legislators to support congestion pricing:

Last week, T.A. launched a major push for congestion pricing that playsto our strengths. With only a handful of weeks before the legislativedeadline to pass pricing, we have rolled out full-page ads in 13 weeklycommunity papers in key areas of Brooklyn, Queens and Manhattan. Each ofthe newspapers serves a neighborhood that is due for major trafficreduction and transit benefits under congestion pricing. And to extendour reach, dozens of T.A volunteers have taken to the subways withflyers letting straphangers know exactly what congestion pricingpromises for their commute.

Update: So far, the form doesn't include a way to contact City Council members, who vote on the proposal first.
