NYC Voters Oppose Congestion Pricing

posted by Terry Trahim -

A new poll by Quinnipiac University found a majority of voters are against a plan to charge drivers to enter parts of Manhattan.  However, they do favor a plan to charge millionaire’s more to fix the subways.

According to the poll, 52 percent oppose the congestion pricing plan put forward by Governor Andrew Cuomo to charge drivers more, compared with 42 percent who support it.

The same poll found that 75 percent like Mayor Bill de Blasio’s idea to raise taxes on millionaire’s to make needed repairs, while 21 percent are against it.

"When voters have a choice between congestion pricing, which anyone who drives or takes a taxi or Uber would pay, and a millionaires' tax, which only millionaires would pay, are you surprised at the results?" Tim Malloy, assistant director of the Quinnipiac University Poll said.
