New York Governor Cuomo to continue call for congestion pricing in 2019

As Gov. Andrew Cuomo announced his “2019 Justice Agenda” on Monday, the state’s top elected official reiterated his fervent support for the introduction of congestion pricing to provide funding to fix the city’s ailing transit system while easing gridlock traffic conditions.

“We have to take the bull by the horns with the MTA and pass a dedicated funding stream so the MTA has the funding it needs,” said Cuomo.

“Congestion pricing is the only alternative,” Cuomo added.
