Reinstate Manhattan congestion pricing for MTA's sustainable future

Reinstate Congestion Pricing in Midtown Manhattan The MTA faces a $15 billion budget shortfall without the anticipated revenue from the congestion pricing plan. Major capital projects like the Second Avenue Subway extension, accessibility upgrades, and transitioning to zero-emission buses are at risk of delays or cancellation. While easing cost pressures on working New Yorkers is important, abandoning congestion pricing removes a critical sustainable funding source for modernizing transit infrastructure and reducing gridlock in Manhattan's central business district. A reinstated tolling program will secure the MTA's future and provide a world-class transit system for all.
