Transportation Alternatives' Initial Response to Report by Queen's Chamber of Commerce
"A Cure Worse than the Disease? How London's 'Congestion Pricing' System Could Hurt New York City's Economy"
A 19-page report titled, "A Cure Worse than the Disease? How London's 'Congestion Pricing' System Could Hurt New York City's Economy" was released today by the Queens Chamber of Commerce.
The Appleseed report offers only a shallow, biased and unsubstantiated analysis of the potential impact of how road pricing might impact New York.
Says Paul Steely White, the Executive Director of Transportation Alternatives, "This report only considers the potential impact on the small minority of people who must drive to Manhattan. It is full of unsubstantiated assumptions, and offers only a shallow and biased view of the potential impact of road pricing in New York City."View this press release in PDF format
