Philadelphia looks at adding a congestion fee

Philadelphia may follow in New York City’s tire tracks by adding a traffic congestion fee in busy parts of the City of Brotherly Love.

Local NBC News affiliate NBC 10 reported last week that there are no proposals or timelines on the table, but the Philadelphia mayor’s office is considering a congestion price table to charge drivers entering the city during certain times and days. The mayor’s office reiterated that the idea is still in very early stages of discussion and the city plans to watch how New York City implements its own congestion charge.
