Comment on Congestion Pricing at MTA Hearing 6/26

june 25,2024

On Wednesday, June 26th at 9:00AM the MTA will hold their next Board Meeting where they welcome comments from members of the public on a range of issues. You may register to speak virtually at this meeting to express your opinions on Congestion Pricing. 

Since Governor Hochul directed the MTA to “indefinitely pause” the Congestion Pricing toll plan earlier this month, we have received inquiries from the business community about what this will mean from them in the future and what they would like to and not like to see.  

If you are a business owner, operator, or worker you may testify at the upcoming hearing and share your opinion on congestion pricing and/or suggest changes to the indefinitely paused program.

Congestion Pricing Toll Overview (Indefinitely paused):

The MTA's congestion pricing plan would have charged cars entering Manhattan below 60th Street a $15 toll once a day between 5AM and 9PM on weekdays and between 9AM to 9PM on weekends. Trucks and buses could be charged between $24 to $36, depending on their size. Toll fees would have been reduced during overnight hours. Passengers would be charged a toll of $1.25 per trip for taxis, green cabs, and for-hire vehicles, and $2.50 per trip for trips dispatched by high-volume for-hire services such as Uber and Lyft. There would be no nighttime discounts.
