Studying Congestion Pricing

Transportation groups are trying to debunk the arguments against congestion pricing.

Paul White, the executive director of the Transportation Alternatives, dropped off at City Hall a five-page report called “Debunking the Attack on Congestion Pricing." It was put together by a coalition of transportation groups called the citywide Coalition for Traffic Relief, and their report is a rebuttal to last year’s report from the Queens chamber of Commerce that said, in short, congestion pricing is really bad.

“Even a cursory examination of this study finds it to be biased and deeply flawed,” this pro-congestion pricing report says. It goes on to refute the Chambers "spurious claim that congestion pricing will result in a net negative impact on the City's economy" and says the Chambers' study is "riddled with errors."
