Poll: City Backs Congestion Pricing, With a Condition

New York City voters support congestion pricing 58 to 36 if the money goes towards preventing a transit fare hike, according to a new poll by Quinnipiac University.

Here’s a breakdown by borough:

Manhattan: 59 to 37
Queens: 53 to 38
Brooklyn: 59 to 35
The Bronx: 61 to 34
Staten Island: 60 to 32

Another interesting figure in the poll is from question 25, which asked how much control the next mayor should have over the city’s public schools.

51 percent said that the next mayor should share control with some kind of school board, and another 9 percent said the next mayor should give it up completely. Only 28 percent said the next mayor should retain control completely.
