New York City's Congestion Pricing Plan Killed



January 31, 2008 By

New York City Mayor Bloomberg's proposed congestion pricing plan -- under which an $8 charge would be levied on motorists driving into lower Manhattan -- died last night, as the state Senate and Assembly failed to act before a federal traffic relief grant application period expired.

Bloomberg, in his Jan. 17 State of the City address, outlined his congestion pricing traffic control measure among a number of technology-based initiatives. Congestion pricing levies a fee -- or adds a tax according to critics -- on vehicle traffic in congested areas, and has been tried in cities such as London, Stockholm and Singapore.

The state has until March 31 to act, after action by NYC city council. The Congestion Commission (which included members of state agencies) recommended a modified approach, which the city is apparently going along with. So it is very much alive, not dead.

Apparently, this publication doesn't believe in retracting information/stories that are incorrect. Just go to the NY times to see that congestion pricing is not dead.
