Thank you for signing up to receive congestion pricing updates from the New York League of Conservation Voters.
New York City has pledged to reduce its emission to net zero by 2050 and implementing congestion pricing is a key component to achieving that goal. The program will help reduce air pollution, improve public health, and raise much-needed funds for improvements to public transportation, which will not only benefit New Yorkers, but also commuters throughout the region.
The federal government’s final Finding of No Significant Impact for the Central Business District Tolling Program, released on June 29, paves the way for the implementation of this first-in-the-nation policy that will provide crucial funding for the MTA.
