This Is What NYC Is Doing to Combat Manhattan's Traffic Congestion

Updated on

Commuters driving into Manhattan’s most congested areas would have to pay an $11.52 daily fee under a proposal from a panel created by Governor Andrew Cuomo.

The plan defines a geographic "pricing zone" and recommends the installation of technology to monitor traffic and charge vehicles electronically. Revenue would go to transit improvement, including continued repairs of the decaying subway system.
