NYC: MTA Kicks Off First Round Of Public Meetings On Congestion Pricing

This week, the MTA begins a series of 10 virtual meetings on its plans to charge drivers who enter Manhattan below 60th Street. The federally mandated public outreach for congestion pricing is both an opportunity for members of the public to hear directly from the MTA about how their community may be impacted by the tolling, and a chance for the public to tell the MTA how they feel about the plans.

The MTA hasn’t said how much it will charge drivers, and whether any groups will be exempted from the tolls. Those things will be decided by a yet-to-be created group at the MTA known as the Traffic Mobility Review Board.
