A plan for quieter streets, cleaner air, better-funded public transport, and a Manhattan focused on the needs of its residents
This article is very biased. First off, they're not charging drivers to clean the air, it wouldn't make a difference about the air if they're putting more MTA buses on the streets that aren't even electric yet. The charge is to fund the MTA and they not even worried about busses they're more concerned about trains. How is horns and car noises any different from the sounds of the trains? How is cars making the city dirty like people don't litter and the issue of homeless people walking around everywhere? This article doesn't make sense other than the actual information that you put from credible sources. But the opinion of your article is VERY misleading to those who come across it. Charging drivers a fee DOESNT solve any of the "harms" you've listed. Car accidents will happen regardless, noise in NEW YORK CITY (if you from here and didn't fly here YOU WOULD KNOW) will always be there without cars. It's alot safer to drive than getting on a subway to have to deal with mentally unstable folks who attack you and show off their private parts, smell ungodly things, have to deal with more noise of people and things on a subway than a honking horn every so often, the subways are dirty within itself ain't no way the streets gonna be clean because of less cars. This article sounds of someone who isn't even FROM here to agree with pricing RESIDENTS inside of the city forget even Jersey people; the other boroughs of NYC, to have to come work when there's barely any work in the other four places outside of Manhattan. My hope is that there is actual level minded people out here that knows this article is complete garbage. Be more worried that the city will sink in a matter of years with all that's being built you worried bout how it smells above ground more than the way it smells UNDERground? You not from here if you think this in any shape or form is a good idea.
It's a blatant tax on goods and services that goes in and out of NYC. It has nothing to do with congestion. The OP is clearly an idiot.
I wonder how we can get New Jersey more excited about congestion pricing, they seem to be the biggest organized detractor of this policy 😭
