Some New Jersey Residents Express Support For NYC Congestion Pricing
A group of New Jersey residents are speaking out in favor of New York City’s congestion pricing plan. They held a rally in support in Jersey City today. There’s been a lot of backlash in New Jersey on congestion pricing including coming from the governor. However, New Jersey resident Rene Reynolds with the Tri-State Transportation Campaign says she and other Jersey residents support a toll for drivers who enter south of 60th Street in Manhattan.
“Folks don’t just do one thing. They drive and they take mass transit and if mass transit was better, perhaps they would make that choice more often.”
Revenue from congestion pricing will be used to improve mass transit. Others in New Jerssey also argue that congestion pricing will improve traffic in New Jersey communities near New York City.
