Trump administration delays NYC’s congestion pricing plan by a year, says MTA construction chief

The MTA’s plan to implement congestion pricing and tax cars in the busiest parts of Manhattan will be delayed by “roughly a year” thanks to holdups by the Trump Administration, the agency’s chief development officer Janno Lieber said Monday.

“We’ve literally hired the consultants. We’ve designed the systems and the cameras and so on that are going to be implemented, but we just can’t move forward without the Trump Administration’s action,” Lieber said during a video interview with the Manhattan Institute.
