Congestion Pricing Plan Proposed

A prominent transportation group is out with its recommendations for the city’s congestion pricing plan.

The Regional Plan Association offered a series of proposals, with drivers paying tolls in both directions south of 60th Street in Manhattan.

One plan would have a flat rate of $6.12. Another would have a peak rate of $9.18 and an overnight charge of $3.06.

There would be no tolls on the FDR or West Side Highway, but there would be very few exemptions for drivers.

It’s unclear whether the MTA would adopt one of the proposals and when it’ll set a price structure for congestion pricing.
