Pricing Recs to Include Residential Parking Permits

Pricing Recs to Include Residential Parking Permits:

The Congestion Mitigation Commission will vote on a plan today at 3 p.m. A source who has seen the final draft of the Commission’s report tells me that it includes the following recommendations:

  • Congestion pricing revenue goes directly to the MTA. 
  • A residential parking permit program with revenues going towards funding streetscape improvements and bike infrastructure.
  • Making 60th Street the northern boundary of the pricing zone rather than 86th Street as Mayor Bloomberg originally proposed.
  • A surcharge on taxis and black cars operating inside the pricing zone.

[Why do I think this is going to get entirely messed up?]
