San Francisco Weighs Congestion Pricing Options

Officials in San Francisco will be presented with reports today on possible ways to integrate congestion pricing and toll zones into the city. If approved, San Francisco would be the first city in the nation to implement congestion pricing.

"Charging people more for anything is always a tough sell. Talk about reaching deeper into people's pockets when the economy is in the tank is even more difficult."

"'We're going to have to get buy-in,' said Jose Luis Moscovich, executive director of the San Francisco County Transportation Authority."

"It's his agency that, with the help of a $1 million federal grant, has been studying the feasibility of congestion pricing in San Francisco."

"The idea will inch forward Tuesday, when the authority's directors - a group made up of the city's 11 elected members of the Board of Supervisors - will be presented with various pricing scenarios and toll-zone locations, and an analysis of the potential benefits and disadvantages."
