The Commuter Question

That New York Times story about Michael Bloomberg being driven to the subway turned out to be such an attention-getter in part because of the mayor’s support for congestion pricing, which provided the context of an official simultaneously supporting a pro-mass-transit policy but personally choosing (at least sometimes) to drive.

Apparently, though, that’s not so unusual. I asked another prominent proponent of congestion pricing, Kathy Wylde of the Partnership for New York City, about her commute.

Here’s the emailed answer I got from her spokesman, Bud Perrone: “She travels mostly by car, which is what got her interested in the problem in the first place.”
