    MTA HEARING: Congestion Pricing Environmental Assessment

    On August 10, 2022, the Triborough Bridge & Tunnel Authority, the New York State Department of Transportation, the New York City Department of Transportation, and the Federal Highway Administration released an Environmental Assessment (EA) of the proposed CBD Tolling Program, which evaluates the effects of the program [Read the CBD Tolling Program Environmental Assessment]. The official 30-day public comment period on the Environmental Assessment and the proposed Section 4(f) de minimis impact determination for the CBD Tolling Program commenced August 10, 2022 and will close September 9, 2022.

    There will be six virtual Public Hearings to provide information and receive comments on the CBD Tolling Program Environmental Assessment:

    • Thursday, Aug. 25, 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. 
    • Saturday, Aug. 27, 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. 
    • Sunday, Aug. 28, 1 p.m. to 4 p.m.
    • Monday, Aug. 29, 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. 
    • Tuesday, Aug. 30, 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. 
    • Wednesday, Aug. 31, 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.

    The Central Business District Tolling Program promises to improve the city’s overall environmental health by reducing traffic and congestion. The plan would also provide a revenue stream dedicated to transit improvements, eventually resulting in easier and faster commutes for all riders. Though residents throughout the five boroughs would experience these benefits, many neighborhoods are also concerned about the potential for negative local impacts. Northern Manhattan residents have in particular raised concerns that suburban commuters will opt to “park and ride” near transit stations in their community, adding to local traffic congestion and reducing the availability of parking. A second concern is that the plan may worsen conditions on an already crowded transit system. A final concern is the impact of the proposed expansion in bus service on communities of color.
